}BA Constitution outdated 

by Steve Colwell 
f egory Ross, Student Body 
jciation President, announced last 
i that plans are now underway to 
itite the current SBA constitution, 
jjss said, "Plans are very tentative 
jiis moment because there are a lot 
letails that have to be worked out, 
I am positive there will be a new 
ititution before the semester is 

K also pointed out that even though 
appointed committee will do the 
jal re-writing of the constitution, it 
have to be accepted by the Student 

i explaining how the revision 
iinittee will be chosen Ross said, "It 
ioped that each organization on 
ipus and even our off campus 
aches such as Fort Polk, Barksdale 
: England Air Force Bases, will 

select someone to represent them on 
this committee and then I will go 
through the procedure of swearing 
them in, after they have met the ap- 
proval of the Senate." 

"What I'm seeking," said Ross, "is a 
greater representation of the student 
body than we presently have in the 
Senate. That's one of the reasons why I 
am not asking the Senate to re-write the 

Koss explained that there are several 
things in the current constitution that 
need to be drastically changed. 

"One of the area's I would like to see 
changed in the constitution," Ross said, 
"is the way representative and 
senators are elected to the SBA. 
Presently , our off -campus branches are 
not represented in the Senate and since 
they are connected with the University, 

I feel they need some type of 

He also added, "lately the Senate has 
been controlled by certain interest 
groups and the whole population of the 
university has not been represented as 
it should." 

"If we could keep certain interest 
groups and get more students and 
organizations represented, I feel we 
can accomplish more as a group," he 

"I would also like to see the 
qualification for office elections be 
changed," Ross added. "I feel that they 
should be open to all people who wish to 
run whether it be president, secretary 
or what." 

Still another area for change, ac- 
cording to Ross, is in the separation of 
powers. "In the past, especially the 
Damico regime, the SBA presidents 

just about ran the meetings in the way 
they wanted." I don't even feel that the 
president should have to go to the 
senate meetings," Ross added. "I'm 
going to go and speak my say on an 
issue and then leave the room in order 
not to put any pressure on the Senate by 
being there when they vote," he added. 

"Even though this is a personal thing 
with me, I do not intend to chair the 
revision committee," Ross said. "I 
want this to be done by the students." 

"There is really no perfect con- 
stitution," said Ross, "so I expect some 
problems in the re-writing. What I am 
really seeking is a true representation 
of the students," he added. 

"With a revision committee of about 
50 people appointed and meetings open 
to the public, everybody and 
organizations will have a chance to be 
heard in expressing their ideas." 

istinguished Lecturer Series 

iill Russell shoots first 

by Paula Jetton 

11 Russell, basketball's "miracle 
o," will be the first fall speaker in 
NSU Distinguished Lecture Series, 
ssell will speak in the Fine Arts 
Jitorium, Monday, Sept. 15, at 10 a. 
Classes will be dismissed. 

lussell says, "I am not a basketball 
Iyer. I am a man who played 
iketball." When Russell says he 
iayed" basketball, he puts it mildly. 
13 ( seasons as the superstar center 
iter player -coach of the Boston 
cs, his team won 11 cham- 
tiips, 27 playoffs, and 65 per cent of 
les played. 

1 1968, Russell was named Sports 
istrated's Sportsman of the Year. In 
1, he became Athlete of the Decade 
ithe Associated Press voted him 
ietball Player of the Decade. 


iussell was the first player-coach in 
ston sports history and the first 
ick ever to manage a major league 
stri of any kind. And in his first year 
head coach and general manager of 

! Seattle Supersonics, he has tran- 
ced the team from last place 
^manent residents to the most im- 

proved team in either division of the 
NBA's Western Conference. 

Russell can play basketball, that's a 
known fact. But, he is rapidly becoming 
one of America's most popular campus 
lecturers and has addressed hundreds 
of college campuses. Russells' 
philosophies on such diverse themes as 
drugs, racism, the draft, patriotism, 
and "learning to live together." Russell 
is congenial, witty and dedicated to 
equal rights and human dignity. He 
deplores the violence and separatist 
attitudes that disrupt coexistence, and 
resents dehumanization through 
classification. "If I can't be a man, I 
can't be anything ... Those who 
categorize me deny me humanness," 
says Russell. "You can't do that 
without losing some of yours." 

In "Bill Russell Raps." the title of his 
lecture, Russell stresses togetherness. 
"We're all here together ; what happens 
to me happens to you ... The only way 
we can get along is if we walk down a 
two-way street together." 

Russell condemns the government's 
inaction on integration and especially 
former President Nixon's slowness in 
desegregating schools. "If someone 
could find a way to make a profit out *t 
better race relationships," he quips, 'it 
would be solved in four or five days. ' 

Russell considers himself a patrbt 
and he advocates work for charge 
within the system. He advises kid? to 
think and participate, but he wsrns 
them: "To think and not participae is 
folly; to participate and not thirK is 

Bill Russell is playing a diferent 
game now. His message is one of ac- 
tion, of involvement, of chanje. He 
speaks as a man, a formidable in- 
dividual, a person who has hought 
about life and who has fomed a 
♦ philosophy about living it. 



Ds. T. P. Southerland and Robert A. Alost received new promotions this summer. 
Dr. Southerland, former head of Education is now the Dean of Graduate School in 
the place of retired Leo T. Allbritten. Dr. Alost is now the head of Education. No 
replacement has been named yet for the Department head of Health, Education 
and Physical Education. 

Plays slated by theatre 

The Northwestern State University 
T^ratrp has selected four M.Bjor 
American productions for the Bicen- 
tennial 1975-76 year, beginning with 
"Sticks and Bones" by David Rabe, 
Oct. 8-11. "You Can't Take It With 
You", by Hart and Kaufman, will be 
presented Nov. 12-15. In the Spring 
semester a series of student-directed 
one act plays will be presented along 
with "West Side Story" to complete the 

"Sticks and Bones" will be directed 
by Ray Schexnider and will be the 
University's entry into the American 
College Theatre Festival held in Baton 
Rouge, Oct. 17-20. The NSU Theatre has 
placed second in the past three years at 
the Festival. 

The play is about a soldier blinded by 
war who is returning home. The play 
involves his attempts to re-adjust to his 
family life and his family to him. 

The second play of the fall semester 
is a comedy, "You Can't Take It With 
You" directed by Dr. E. Robert Black. 
"The play fits well in the Bicentennial 
Theme," said Dr. Black. 

The play, in the mid-thirties, involves 
many hilarious situations, including 
dancing lessons, the making of 
fireworks, rejecting the new income

Thii Spring semester will open with a

The musical "West Side Story," dealing 
with street gangs in New York City, to 
close the season. 

"All the plays this season will be by 
American playwriters for the Bicen- 
tennial," said Dr. Black. 

Try-outs are open to any interested 
student enrolled at NSU and season 
tickets for this year's productions are 
now on sale until Oct. 8, in the speech 
office on the NSU campus. General 
admission tickets are $5.00 for the 
entire season. Season tickets for faculty

Meal option 

NSU students will not have the option 
of choosing between a five-day meal 
ticket or a seven-day meal ticket, ac- 
cording to Bill Schwartz, Director of 
Student Services. 

The option between a five-day meal 
ticket and a seven-day meal ticket had 
been proposed earlier and had been 
under consideration. However, Sch- 
wartz said the main reason for not 
choosing the five-day plan was because 
there is not enough time to re-program 
the computers for the fall semester. 

Schwartz said he was informed that it 
would require several hundred man 
hours to re-program the computers and 
they would not be ready for the fall 

Schwartz added that since the 
university is under contract for one 
year with a particular company to 
provide the food service, that it would 
not be possible to change to the five-day 
meal plan in the spring semester, 

Fees due 

The dates for Fall room and 
board payments have been 
released by the Cashier's 
office. The first payment was 
paid during registration. 

The dates for the three in- 
stallments are Sept. 26, Oct. 
24, and Nov. 21.

NSU catered by 
new food service 

by Colette Oldmixon 

"If we can please most of the people 
most of the time, we feel we will be 
doing our job," E. J. Williams, director 
of Pickett Food Services said. Pickett 
handles the food service for Iberville 
Dining Hall this year. 

Pickett Food Service, with home 
offices located in Shreveport, serves 
Centenary College, LSUS, and Western 
Electric Manufacturing Co. in addition 
to NSU. According to Williams, their 
catering division handles about 75 
percent of the catering in the 
Shreveport area. The vending division 
handles about 75 to 80 percent of the 
vending concessions in that city. 

Pickett has had much experience, 
Williams said. They have military and 
industrial feeding contracts, serving 
such places as Fort Myers, Va. and, at 
one tune, the Pentagon. 

Williams has plans for improving 
service and student enjoyment. Any 
suggestions would be welcomed. He 
plans to serve a special meal once a 
month and steak night will continue to 
be held on Saturdays. 

According to Williams, his basic 
problem at the moment is acquiring 

needed equipment. He is present.y 
waiting on new coke machines, which 
will be installed as soon as they arrive. 

Two new additions to the dining hall 
services are a salad bar and ice cream. 
The salad bar features five different 
salads — a combination salad, cottage 
cheese, jello salad and two additional 
ones. Ice cream is now being served 
twice daily. 

Williams is from Shreveport, where 
he has lived for seven years. He holds a 
Bachelor of Science Degree in Business 
Management and one in personnel and 
Industrial Management, both from the 
University of Missouri in Columbia. He 
holds a Master's in Food and Nutrition 
from the same school. 

Williams stated Pickett's basic 
philosophy, "The food should look 
appealing; be as tasty as possible; 
employees should be nice ar.d well- 
groomed; and the tuning hail dud iSS 
facilities should be kept as clean as 

Williams expressed his desire to give 
NSU students good meals in pleasant 

Williams has two children — Steven, 
11 and Saralynn, 9. His wife Judy 
handles his bookkeeping and payroll. 

Scholarships awarded 
by Horse Association 

Three NSU students have been 
awarded four year scholarships 
donated by the Arabian Horse 
Association of Louisiana. A $1,600 
scholarship has been presented to the 
Northwestern State University 
Foundation, in accordance with the 
recently established Arabian Horse 
unit at NSU. 

The recipients of the award are Boyle 
Boudreau of Baton Rouge, Janet 
Thompson of Denham Springs, and 
Mary Himel of Hammond. Boudreau 
received a full scholarship and the 
others received half scholarships. 

The scholarship presentation was 
made to NSU in July during the AHAL's 
quarterly board of directors and 
general membership meeting held on 
the NSU campus. 

Donald R. Miller, Shreveport at- 
torney and president of the 132-member 
state Arabian Horse association, made 
the scholarship presentation to NSU 
president, Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

"We are privileged to have the 
Arabian Horse Association of Louisiana 
participate in our equine science 
program," said Kilpatrick. "We are 
especially pleased to have them par- 
ticipate since the Arabian Horse unit 
will serve as the basis for our 

The scholarship, according to Miller, 

will be maintained on an annual basis. 
"This is a meaningful and worthwhile 
effort for the association," he stated. 
"This is being done in conjunction with 
the other efforts at NSU to bring at- 
tention to the popularity of the Arabian 
Horse and the need for a better un- 
derstanding of equine science. Nor- 
thwestern's selection of the Arabian 
Horse as the basis of its equine science 
program is very pleasing to the 
association's membership." 

The three students chosen for the 
scholarship, according to Dr. Zoel 
Daughtrey, chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Earth Sciences, will be in 
charge of the training and care of the 
Arabian Horse Unit. This will include 
the showing of the horses at national 
shows throughout the Southwest. 

Addressing the association's board of 
directors and members in July were 
Kilpatrick and Dr. E. Dan McArthur of 
Sandy Utah, president of the In- 
ternational Arabian Horse Association. 

Other Northwestern officials who 
attended the meeting were Dr. C. B. 
Ellis, assistant to the president; Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu, dean of the College of 
Science and Technology; Dr. Zoel 
Daughtrey; Dr. Jack Pace, director of 
livestock operations at NSU, and Dr. 
Sam A. Misuraca, Northwestern

The Way I See It j 

Apathy (after the dance? J 

It was a pleasant surprise to 
see so many people at the 
Howdy Dance during 
registration week. It really 
shouldn't have been sur- 
prising considering the great 
band who was playing (Earth 
from Baton Rouge) and the 
some 500 to 600 new freshmen 
on campus this semester. New 
faces may be just the shot in 
the arm the student body 
needs to get over its recent 
illness, apathy. 

Now if other planned ac- 
tivities, such as the bus trips 
to our "home" football games, 

will be supported in the same 
manner, we may be able to get 
this school back on its feet 
along the lines of spirit and 
school pride. 

Those involved with the 
planning of the chartered bus 
trips to football games have 
spent a lot of time to provide 
students who can't or don't 
want to drive to the games a 
way to get there. The buses 
are insured, and you can sit 
back and let them do the 
driving (which will be 
especially nice for the games 
in Lakes Charles and 

Nacogdoches). Also take into 
consideration that this is a 
student project and is not 
sponsored by the University. 
So it is up to the students to 
make this project work. It will 
be a shame if we pass this 
opportunity by. And now that 
you've decided definitely to go 
on the bus, get your date early 
and make your reservations 
early too. A night in 
Shreveport has got to be better 
than that same night in 
Natchitoches — (when 
everyone else is in Shreveport 
having a good time). 

Register to register 

One of the easiest ways to 
register one's complaints with 
a political system is to 
register to vote. In the past, 
Northwestern students have 
had a reason to complain 
about the political system in 
which they find themselves 
during their four (or more) 
years in Natchitoches, par- 
ticularly concerning the works 
of our present state senator 
from this area. 

Whether or not you agree 
with what has happened in the 
past, such as the various in- 

cidents surrounding NSU's try 
at getting beer on campus, you 
may be interested in what 
goes on in the future. 

Northwestern students can, 
have, and will continue to 
register to vote in Nat- 
chitoches Parish. After all, 
you live here probably more 
than you are living any other 

There are elections coming 
up within a very few months 
and October 1 at 4:30 p. m. is 
the deadline for registering to 
vote in those elections. 

It may be the best thing you 
do for this university and your 
fellow students, both present 
and future. Get out and 
register. And then get out and 
vote. The Natchitoches Parish 
Registrar of Voters office is 
located in the Parish court- 
courthouse downtown. Mr. 
McKnight, the registrar of 
voters, will be happy to help 
you whether you are 
registering for the first time 
or simply transfering your 
registration from somewhere 

Where's Schwartz? 

The question "Where is Bill 
Schwartz?" has come up in 
several conversations lately. 
It seems like he just disap- 
peared into thin air aj the end 
of the summer semester. Rest 
easy, because Bill Schwartz is 
alive and well in Shreveport 
(Shreveport's gain, Nor- 
thwestern's loss). As far as 
Current Sauce goes, Bill was 
one of the few people around 

here where we could get 
questions answered without 
going through a lot of red tape. 
And when he didn't know the 
answer, he usually could find 
out for us. We don't know the 
circumstances or reasons 
behind his leaving, but we 
wish him good luck in 

Replacing Bill as Director of 
Student Services is Cecil 

Knotts, a 1970 graduate of 
Northwestern's Student 
Personnel program. Knotts 
comes to us from West 
Georgia College in Carrollton, 
Georgia where he served as 
that school's Director of 
Activities. From what we've 
heard, Knotts is well qualified 
to handle the job ... but it's a 
tough job no matter who is 
sitting at the desk. 

Reporters needed! 

During the summer 
semester, when there weren't 
very many students here to 
even read it, we issued a plea 
for reporters for Current 
Sauce. The fact that this 
newspaper didn't cover the 
other campuses (Shreveport, 
Fort Polk, etc) as well as we 
should, and also that we don't 
even have enough reporters to 
go around here on the Nat- 

chitoches campus were the 
reasons. We were optimistic 
thinking floods of interested 
students would wirte letters, 
make phone calls and drop by 
our office to volunteer their 
help. We're still optimistic. 

"We're not really as 
desperate as this may sound, 
but we really could use some 
help. You don't have to have 

had experience; we will train 
you. This is an ideal op- 
portunity for freshmen and 
veteran students alike. We 
don't have a quota — the more 
the merrier. 

It would be wonderful if 
Current Sauce, starting this 
semester, could cover 
everything that NSU does, no 
matter which campus it is 
happening on. 

Odd and Sundry 

A lot of strange rumors pass 
through the Current Sauce 
office each week. Some are to 
be thrown in the trash, but 
some are to be passed on to the 
readers. This week's rumor 
has it that some fraternity is 

having their pledges sleep in 
pink leotards. Let's hope it's 
just a rumor. 

Another tidbit of in- 
formation — if you have 
trouble finding a copy of 
Current Sauce on Tuesdays 

this semester, come by the 
office located in room 225A on 
the second floor of the Arts 
and Sciences Building. We 
usually have extra copies left 
over after distributing bundles 
around campus.

To the Editor, 

The Family Privacy Act of 
1974, the so-called Buckley 
Amendment, restricts the use 
of confidential records that 
the University maintains on 
students. The only in- 
formation that we can give 
unauthorized people is in- 
formation that is contained in 
the student directory. 
However, if a student does not 
want this information 
revealed, the University will 
honor his or her wishes and 
will not divulge the address, 
telephone number, or 
classification to anyone 
asking for that material 
unless so authorized in writing 
by the student. 

We are, therefore, asking 
that all students who do not 
want their names listed in the 
student directory to notify this 
office immediately in writing, 
as we are going to press with 
the directory shortly.

derstand that the same act 
also applies to the telephone 
information service, 6361 as it

from their listing, you may 
also request this action in 
writing through Dr. 
Galloway's office.)

Arnold Kilpatrick 

Dear Sir, 

As graduating seniors in the 
arts, before leaving NSU, we 
would like to express our 
thanks for your sincere in- 
terest and continuing en- 
thusiasm in our work. We just 
want you to know, Arnold, how 
very much we appreciate your 
patronage of all — or most of 
all, or nearly all .. or ... some 
of all?. ..of our art exhibits, 
music concerts, recitals and 
theatre productions over the 
past four years that we have 
resided here; we know that 
the many long nights of ardous 
work, striving for perfection 
in our field, have not gone 
unnoticed by one who is so 
obviously attuned to the arts 
as yourself. 

Broadminded is the 
president who can appreciate 
and attend the various ac- 
tivites of the University in- 
stead of focusing all his at- 
tention (as many presidents of 
other universities are inclined 
to do) strictly on such items as 
athletics — football, for 

In the course of our exhibits 
and productions and recitals, 
we have often felt that our 
efforts as artists were in- 
tended not only to educate 
members of the student body, 
but also of the faculty and 
staff, and yes, even the 
president of the University. 
Hence, we are confident in our 
knowledge of the great depth 
of your cultural understanding 
and wealth, recalling how 
often we have been graced by 
your presence in our art 
center and in our theatre. 

Thank you for helping to 
make our education so 
rewarding. It was always 
comforting to know that you 
were behind us all the way.

Your sink is cloeeed. vour landlords are very prompt ^ to check into st „ 

Your sink is clogged, your 
money is running out, you 




keep getting letters from 
offices you've never heard of 
— what do you do, where do 
you go to get action and to get 
answers to your questions? 
You're away from mom and 
dad. No more getting pop to 
check the car's oil, no more 
getting mom to do your 
laundry and mend your

that you need to do, but you're 
in a strange town (well, not so 
strange, just not home) and 
you don't know where to find 
anything. Really — where do 
you go for help? 

The University, for all intent 
and purposes, is your lan- 
dlord. Just like the landlord of 
an apartment complex, the 
University is responsible for 
taking care of such things as 
heating and cooling, plum- 
bing, wiring, repairing win- 
dows, broken tiles on the floor 
and spraying for creepy- 
crawly things (ants, roaches, 
spiders and the like). Some 

when called upon to do some 
job, some aren't. 

You already know how to 
report such things (R. A.'s, 
baskets at the desk for 
repairs, and confronting your 
house director face to face). 
Should these prove a little on 
the slow side, be sure to let the 
other people know. Call 
housing or maintenance and 
stress the necessity of having 
whatever is broken repaired 
right away. If all else fails, 
have your father call long- 
distance. Fathers are miracle 
workers for some reason. 

A very typical ailment of all 
college students since time 
began is that of finding the 
pocket empty when you 
simply must have money to 
spend on necessities (a college 
student can't go for very far 
without tootpaste or coke 
money). Until the monthly (?) 
check comes from home what 
do you do? Borrowing money 
may be necessary. But don't 
borrow from your roommate

There is some place you can 
borrow small amounts of

When the world is gone,

A report is true when it 
squares with the facts of the 
actual event. Truth must deal 
in concrete statements. We 
have a great deal of trouble 
here because we all are 
somewhat blind to some of the 
facts of erery case. Thus we 
may give a report of an ac- 
cident and think that we are 
reporting tie truth. As we see 
it, "we are telling it like it is," 
but another nay not report it 
that way at $1. Regardless of 
how haphazaidly the event is

"Good" ant "evil" are 
words used a g-eat deal. We 
must ask what is it that is 
good? What is itthat is evil?

Being created by igood God 
for his own glory, pople are 
good and not evil, let people 
have evil thoughts, evil ac- 
tivities, and unlovely »ays. By 
association we become un- 
desirables. Yet, can ?e lose 
that quality with with we 
were created? The Bibj says 


that we can. (Cf . Romans 1 : 18- 
32) God will let go and let each 
one establish his own stan- 
dards, his own way of looking 
at things. All can "do their 
own thing." Men's ideas 
compared with other men's 
ideas may appear from their 
point of view altogether true, 
beautiful and good. But when

same location as the field at 
35-year-old Demon Stadium on 
the NSU campus, will be the 
first artificial surface football 
facility at any college or 
university in Louisiana. 

The first phase of con- 
struction is also scheduled to 
begin this fall on a $1.6 million 
outdoor recreation complex 
that is being financed by fees 
approved in a campus-wide 
election by NSU students. 

Included in the first phase of 
the project will be the con- 
struction of an Olympic-size 
swimming pool and a pool 
service building. Other 
facilities planned for the 77- 
acre project are tennis courts, 
a nine-hole golf course, golf 
and tennis pro shops, picnic 
areas and a miniature golf 

Northwestern, which gained 
university status in 1970, will 
also expand its academic 
outreach and continuing 
education programs this fall 
with the construction of a $1.50 
million educational center at 
Fort Polk. 

Hundreds of military and 
civilian students attend 
graduate and undergraduate

Demons scalped by Indians 

Northwestern State wants to 
get into the ranks of Division I 
schools. Well, last Saturday 
evening they got a taste of 
what it would be like to be in 
Division I. Coach A. L. 
Williams, new head coach of 
the Demons, watched all night 
as the Indians of Arkansas 
State literally blew his team 

off the field. When the smoke 
cleared the battered Demon 
crew could only shake their 
heads at the 42-0 score 
showing on the scoreboard. 

For a while it looked as if the 
scrappy Demon defense would 
be able to hold it close. The 
Demon defense held the In- 
dians following a 37-yard punt

return by Doyle Cross at their 
own 41 yard line after that it 
went all downhill for the 

Northwestern was able to 
get into ASU territory only 
twice during the whole night. 
Once when they were forced to 
punt at the Arkansas State 46- 
yard line and, on the final play 
of the night when Stuart 
Wright completed a 48-yard 
bomb to Waymond Waters to 
the ASU 27-yard line. 

ASU quarterback David 
Hines was a defensive back 
for the Indians for the past 
three seasons before being 
made a starting quarterback. 
Last Saturday evening he 
played his first college game 
as quarterback. Hines scored 
four touchdowns, himself, and 
provided more offense than 
was necessary to overcome 
the Demons. Not bad for 
someone who had never 
quarterbacked a college game 


The tough ASU defense did 
the rest. Northwestern 
managed only 43 yards 
rushing and picked up only 
eight first downs. They could 
only manage 98 yards in the 
air between Butch Ballard and 
Wright. Arkansas State 
ground out a total of 395 yards 
and completed eight of 17 
passes for 92 yards. However 
in the seven scoring drives 
made by ASU none of the 
passes figured, it was all done 
on the ground. 

When the Indians started to 
score there seemed to be no 
stopping them. Three of their 
touchdowns came in a nine 
minute span. ASU added 
another score with only three 
seconds showing in the half for 
good measure. 

Foulks started a drive from 
the Indian 42 following a 
Wright punt with two quick 
carries of better than 10 yards. 
He then took it over from eight

yards out with a minute left in 
the first quarter to cap a seven 
play drive. 

Three minutes later the 
Demons gave the Indians 
another scoring opportunity 
when Wright bobbled a snap 
while attempting to punt and 
Jimmy Lasko jumped on the 
loose ball at the Demon 40 
yard line. It took them only 
eight plays, with Foulks doing 
most of the work and Hines 
carrying it over on a quar- 
terback sneak. 

ASU scored a few minutes 
later when after failing to 
move the ball the Demons 
again called on Wright to punt. 
Kicking out of his own end 
zone the ball again fell to 
Cross who returned it to the 
Demon 30. 

A five-play drive followed 
for the third score. Foulks 
grinding out the yardage on 
the ground and Hines again 
scored on a quarterback 

The Demons, however, 
could get nowhere against the 
big ASU front line. Both 
Ballard and Wright tried to 
generate some offense, but 
neither were able to get close 
enough to threaten. 

Hines would not quit as he 
led the Indians on a 15-play 
drive late in the first half and 
scored his third touchdown on 
a nine-yard rollout just before 
the horn sounded. The Indians 
went into the dressing rooms 
with a 25-0 halftime ad- 

The Demon defense did 
stiffen early in the second half 
after the Indians had driven to 
the NSU 6. Don Mullen came 
on and kicked through a 24- 
yard field goal to cap a 14-play 
74-yard drive. 

After scoring his fourth 
touchdown on a nine-yard 
keeper around left end Hines 
left the game. Randy Reed 
took over for Hines and drove 
the Indians on a 91-yard drive 
climaxed by tailback Dennis 
Bolden's 11-yard run. 

The Indian's offense of 493 
yards to NSU's 135 yards and 
the first down differential of 
32-8 more than amply told the 
story of the complete 
domination, which began 
shortly after the opening

Randy Walker is cut 

>st kno\ 

In a surprise move last Monday the 
Green Bay Packers cut punter Randy 
Walker, a former Northwestern State 
star, and placed him on waiver 

Walker, who averaged 38.4 yards per 
punt last year as a rookie regular for 
the Packers, was given the notice 
Monday morning. He was not claimed 
after being placed on waivers so he is 
now a free agent. 

Jones got the call and started two 
games before he received torn car- 
tileges in his rib. Randy was forced into 
action before he was fully healed. 

vs. Nebraska 
vs. Kent St. 
vs. McNeesi 
igan St. VS. 

Walker was the regular season 
punter for the Packers last season 
because Ron Wildby, the regular 
punter, had not recovered from a 
severe back injury. The Packers had 
not expected to need the services of a 
punter, but drafted Randy in the 12th 
round just to be on the safe side. 

When it was learned that Wildby 
would be out for the entire 74 season, 
Walker became Johnny-on-the spot. He 
responded with a 38.4 average and 
helped the Packer defense with his 
hanging kicks. 

Walker's cut is suprising because he 
was the only healthy Packer punter and 
his closest competition, Spike Jones, 
has torn cartilage in his ribs and has not 
performed as well as Walker. 

When Walker went to camp in July , 
he found out that the punting chores 
would belong to either he or Jones, a 
free agent picked up after he was cut 
from Buffalo at mid season last year. 

Before pre-season had even gotten 
started Randy severly sprain his 
kicking ankle doing knee-lift rope drills.

Demons lose 'Big O' for the season 

Northwestern's Head 
Football Coach A.L. Williams 
reluctantly announced 
Thursday that starting 

defensive tackle Oscar 
Kessinger has been lost for the 
season due to a knee injury. 
Kessinger, a 6-foot-2, 228- 

Randy played with a sprained ankle 
against the Bengals and averaged 41 
yards on five punts. The total return 
yardage being about 25 yards. 

However, the next week on a 
nationally televised game a Damion 
Nygaard punted the entire game for the 
Packers. Anyone watching the game 
could tell that the man had never 
played football in his life. The joker was 
downright awful! Standing on the 
sidelines Walker could only watch 
helplessly. On the following, Monday 
Walker got the axe. 

Three other Demons have also been 
beset by misfortune this year. Running 
back Mario Cage, an 11th round pick, 
was cut by the Baltimore Colts last 
week. Cornerback John Dilworth, 
selected in the eighth round by Miami, 
is on the injured list, which means he is 
still property of the Dolphins, but he is 
still inactive. His status will be 
clearified within the next two weeks 
when the season gets started for the 

Al Dodd a seven year veteran was 
also let go by the Dolphins. Dodd played 
on the Demons 1966 undeafeated and 
untied championship team as a 
defensive safety. 

Jackie Smith is the only remaining 
Demon active in the NFL. He is a tight 
end for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Student to lecture 
on meditation 

by Paula Jetton 

Roberto Quintanales, senior 
gymnastics major, will 
present a lecture on Tran- 
scendental Meditation 
tomorrow at 7:30 at La Bonne 
Maison, located at 113 Boyd 
St. behind Burger Chef. 

Transcendental Meditation 
is a science of creative in- 
telligence which uses the 
natural tendency of the mind 
to progress and go beyond all 
limitations and gain un- 

of the Pink

bounded awareness. This 
science arose from the 
discovery that there exists in 
every human being the con- 
stant source of intelligence, 
energy, and happiness and 
that this source can be easily 
and systematically drawn 
upon by everyone for spon- 
taneous use in every day life. 

The procedure for anyone 
interested in attending a class 
in TM, according to Quin- 
tanales, consists of two lec- 
tures, the first to inform 
people what TM can do for 
them; the second lecture deals 
with how TM works, how it 
differs from other sciences, 
where it came from and the 
principles behind it. From 
these lectures those who are 
seriously interested will meet 
privately with the teacher to 
learn the techniques, and then 
spend three days learning on 
their own how to meditate 
properly, meeting daily to 
exchange ideas and in- 
formation. After one week of 
instruction, a person is totally 
able to handle TM alone. 

Meditation provides the body 
very deep rest which release 
very deep stress, while at the 
same time, we're using more 
and more of our mental 
ability," said Quintanales.'

Buses roll to games 

^ED A RIDE? Buses will be provided to 
football games. The first bus is heading to 
henF. Austin this weekend. Although the date 

for reserving a seat is passed, students should 
make reservations the Monday prior to each 
game for which buses are being chartered. 

Students needing transportation to 
this season's football games will be able 
to ride chartered Continental Trailways 
buses to several games, according to 
Mike Armstrong, graduate student 
from the Student Personnel Office. 
Armstrong, who has been coordinating 
the project said that buses will be 
available to five games, three in 
Shreveport and the McNeese and 
Stephen F. Austin games in Lake 
Charles and Nacogdoches, respec- 

Deadline for making reservations is 
the Monday prior to each of the games 
for which the buses are being char- 
tered. The first buses will leave 
Saturday for Nacogdoches. 

Other games for which buses will run 
include NSU vs. Northeast Louisiana in 
Shreveport Oct. 4, NSU vs. Jacksonville 
State in Shreveport Oct. 25, NSU vs. 
Troy State in Shreveport Nov. 1 and the 
McNeese game Nov. 8. 

Each bus will hold 46 students, and 
any organization that can give 
assurance of filling an entire bus can 

reserve its own bus. This will mean that 
the organization takes the respon- 
sibility for paying for the bus even if 
they do not fill it. 

Students can reserve seats for the 
game buses by going to Room 211 of the 
Student Union. Bus tickets for the first 
Shreveport trip will be subsidized by 
the Student Union Governing Board and 
will cost the students $3.55 for a round- 
trip ticket. Other games to Shreveport, 
pending further subsidizing, will cost 
$7.13. Students will be admitted to 
Shreveport games on their student I. 
D.'s. Tickets will be available at the 
gate in Lake Charles. 

Buses will be boarded in the parking 
lot behind the Student Union at 5:30 p. 
m. Saturday for the Shreveport games, 
at 2 : 30 p. m. for the S. F. Austin game in 
Nacogdoches and at 2 p. m. for the 
McNeese game in Lake Charles. 

Buses will leave approximately a half 
hour after the end of the games and 
arrangements for stopping at each 
dorm are under consideration. Ac- 
cording to Armstrong, if an entire bus 

wants to delay their return to Nat- 
chitoches after a game, this may also 
be considered. Students must retain 
their bus ticket stubs to get back on the 
bus after the game. 

Buses will travel to the various 
games in caravan style along with 
buses carrying the Demon band, 
Quarterback Club buses and various 
civic groups from Natchitoches. A 
police escort for the caravan is also 
under consideration. 

Anyone wanting to ride on the student 
sponsored buses needs to reserve seats 
early as all seats are on a first-come- 
first-served basis. If a bus is not filled, 
those who have purchased tickets for 
that bus will be refunded. 

The NSU Quarterback Club, which is 
also taking buses to the same games, 
emphasized that persons didn't have to 
be members of the Quarterback Club to 
ride their buses. Anyone wishing to ride 
their bus should contact Wayne Mc- 
Cullen at 357-0629 for more information. 

For more information concerning the 
student sponsored buses call 357-6571.

that even in the days of the American 
Colonies the interaction by people who 
spoke different languages produced a 
special language phenomenon referred 
to as "pigeon" English, a simplified 
language form adapted to a particular 

"There are very elaborate records 
that show pigeon English existing in the 
American Colonies," said Dillard. "The 
records go back as far as 1605 S. D. and 
continue well up into the 19th century. 
This differs with the traditional theory 
which simply holds that there was no 
pigeon English. The traditional theory 
suggests that the older language groups 
learned the same kind of English that 
the British immigrants spoke." 

Dillard's book on all-American 
English was discussed in a four-page 
review in the New York Review of 
Books and was also given considerable 
space in the New York Times. 

"My book is highly controversial, and 
it contradicts the academic point of 
view regarding the history of the 
American English," he stated. "Going 
against the traditional theory has at- 
tracted a lot of attention to the book." 

"There's no place like home," said 
the newly appointed director of student 
services, Cecil Knotts. 

Knotts has taken over the position left 
vacant by Bill Schwartz who left the 
university to work with family business 
in Shreveport. 

Knotts, who is the son of Mrs. Roy 
Knotts of Natchitoches, was born and 
raised in Natchitoches Parish. 

He is a graduate of Natchitoches High 
School and received his master of 
business degree from Louisiana State 
University in Baton Rouge. 

"This job is a tremendous challenge 
and a little bit different than the job I 
had in Georgia," Knotts said. 

In Ga. he was the director of activity 
at West Georgia College in Carrollton. 
His duties there consisted of advising 
the programs board, all organizations 
on campus, the student newspaper and 
yearbook, business manager and the 
student budget. 

Knotts said from his observation 

there has been a big change in the 
physical, operational and structural 
standpoints. The educational aims of 
the students are the same as when he 
attended NSU, however he noted. 

"I enjoy working with students," 
Knotts said. "I am very student 
oriented and my office is always open 
for students to come in and discuss 
matters with me. I also like a lot of 
student feedback in the areas for which 
I am responsible." 

Knotts has worked for the university 
before. Once in 1969 when he was an 
accountant in the auditors office and he 
worked primarily with the Bureau of 
Research. Then when he worked as a 
graduate assistant under the division of 
student services. 

He is married to the former Kay 
Stevens, also of Natchitoches, whose 
father is Melvin Stevens of the 
university agricultural department. 
They have one son, 9- year-old , Jeff

ijWay said the bookstore charges no

The store makes a profit of about $1.50

Galloway said it is against university 
policy to allow the formation of a 
student cooperative designed to buy 
and sell books on a non-profit basis. He 
said he does not object to students 
selling books to each other "as long as 
there is no organized effort."

Mr. Staff is a name chosen at random 
in order to fill a segment of the schedule

definition of Mr. Staff.) For others it is 
a class that no one wants to teach and so 
until a teacher can be rooked into 
teaching it they simply put Mr. Staff as 
the instructor. Now in the cases of 
extremely hard teachers — Mr. Staff is 
used so students will not know who is

As a new student at Northwestern, 
what do i need to know about the law 

enforcement officers in Natchitoches? 

"Gee, Id 
on't know what to tell you about them," 
said Patty Hearst, newly-appointed 
Public Information Officer for the 
Natchitoches law enforcement agen- 
cies. "I just hopped off of a bus from 
Pennsylvania and they hired me." 

The Natchitoches area is served by 
three agencies: The Northwestern 
University Police, the Natchitoches 
City Police and the Natchitoches Parish 
Sheriff's Department. 

In the past, a few enthusiastic of- 

ficers engaged in questionable prac- 
tices to secure drug arrests. The of- 
ficers received suspensions for their 
actions. Most of these men are no 
longer associated with the police. 

Hopefully, these infractions were 
exceptions rather than the rule. 

Use courtesy and common sense in 
dealing with any law officer. Being 
polite may be difficult and it certainly 
doesn't guarantee that the officer will 
return the kindness. Just don't be an- 
tagonistic toward them and try to keep 
your conversation to a rninimum.

The Way I See It 

"No-show-itis " hits SBA 

Northwestern had had "no-shows" for 
concerts (no one going to the concerts), "no- 
shows" for speeches (no one going to 
speeches), "no-shows" for classes (no one 
going to classes?), but "no-shows "in the 
Student Senate at the beginning of a 
semester, with new officers and senators who 
should be chomping at the bit ready to solve 
the students problems, not to mention their 
own, should be unheard of. 

For the past two weeks, the Senate has 
failed to get quorum, and without quorum, the 
SBA can't get any business done. Perhaps the 
senators have something better to do, after 

all, senate business can't be too much fun. But 
when a student runs in a university-wide 
election for the privilege (if you want to call it 
that) of representing the students in making 
decisions, then he should be responsible 
enough to show-up for the meetings or suffer 
the consequences-ln this case, being replaced 
on the senate for the elected one, no matter in 
what percentage, would be to violate the 
rights of the students to elect who they want to 
represent them. But in this case, the SBA can 
hardly be found at fault, but the senators who 
haven't bothered come to the past meeting 
are at fault. 

KNWD — at last 

What do you say to a crazy person who 
comes running down the halls of the Arts and 
Sciences Building carrying a radio which is 
playing full blast and shouting, "Listen, 
listen, it's us, it's us! " Most people would call 
the police and have him quietly delivered to 
the proper authorities so that he could be 
taken care of. Except that this guy happens to 
be running the campus radio station, KNWD- 
FM, and the reason he is running around 
holding a radio up to anyone and everyone's 
ears is because last week KNWD-FM made 
its first equipment air check and after waiting 
three years, the excitement just finally got to 
Shawn Tillman. 

Knox Pruett, the chief engineer, was a little 
more subdued but excited too. It's very 

gratifying to see something everyone has 
worked on for so long finally come into being. 

The station is now waiting for the FCC to 
come check out the transmitter and other 
equipment and then Northwestern and 
Natchitoches will finally have a much needed 
alternative to the local stations already on the 

The station is transmitting at 91.7 on the FM 
dial and as of September 30, (hopefully no 
later) you'll be able to listen to the NSU 
station 24-hours a day (although this isn't 
necessarily good for your health, everyone 
needs a couple of hours sleep). But you can 
bet that the staff and d.j.'s from KNWD-FM 
will be up that full first 24-hours. It's time for 
celebrating over there. 

Current Sauce after dark 

Current Sauce staff members are indeed a 
strange breed. They seem only to come out 
after dark. This is very practical from the 
standpoint of the academic world. If they 
were all always in the office during the day, it 
would be a pretty good sign that they weren't 
going to classes. So they show up at the 
Current Sauce office at night, when things are 
quiet and the phone isn't ringing off the wall 
and people aren't making faces at them in the 
windows as they pass the office between 

The only problem is that someone or 

several someones will go out to get cokes for 
the rest of the gang, and not be able to get 
back in the building. Those people wandering 
from door to door on Wednesday and Thur- 
sday nights aren't trying to break into the 
Arts and Science Building, they're not van- 
dals, they're just reporters, editors and 
business staffers trying to do an honest day's 
(scratch day's and put in night's) work 
because they don't have that much time 
during the day to put in. 

University Police...don't be alarmed, and 
please don't even be tempted to shoot. 

More vacancies 

Both the SBA and the Student Union 
Governing Board are in need of secretaries. 
Qualifications are stated in the student 
handbook, but almost anyone who has been 
here a year can meet them. The SUGB is also 
looking for a chairman for their decorations 
committee. Anyone applying for this position 
must already be on the committee or have 

been on it in the past. Both secretaries receive 
a partial scholarship, so anyone qualified 
would do well to look into the matter. 

Applications should be filed respectively in 
the SBA office or the Student Union Director's 
office. Both are located on the second floor of 
the Student Union . 


The dates for Fall room and 
board payments have been 
released by the Cashier's 
office. The first payment was 

paid during registration. 

The dates for the three

To the Editor, 

On November 1 of this year 
you will have a chance to cast 
a vote to decide who will run 
our state for the next four 
years. Your vote is as strong 
as you want it to be. If you 
choose not to vote it means 
absolutely nothing. If you do 
vote, your vote does mean 
something. Your vote can 
mean still more if you can get 
other people to vote the same 
way that you do. 

One of the important jobs to 
be filled on November 1 is that 
of Commissioner of 
Agriculture, a job that affects 
each and every person in 
Louisiana one way or another. 

Gil Dozier is a candidate for 
Commissioner of Agriculture. 
He received his B.S. degree in 
Agriculture for the University 
of Southwestern Louisiana, 
and his law degree from 
Louisiana State University 
Law School. He is a farmer, an 

attorney, businessman, and 
was a pilot in the United States 
Air Force. Gil is married to 
the former Jean Kirkland and 
is the father of five children. 
The Doziers reside in Baton 

We need a change in the 
Department of Agriculture. 
Gil Dozier represents the type 
of change that will be good for 
all of the people of Louisiana. 
But— Gil can't win this 
election by running a one man 
campaign. He needs the help 
of volunteers from all over the 
state. If you are interested in 
doing any type of campaign 
work for Gil Dozier, please 
contact us, you'll be doing 
yourself and your state a

Natchitoches, La. 

It seems that every fall 
semester, NSU Greeks who 
don't have off-campus 
residential houses "get the 
bug" to buy their fraternity or 
sorority a house in town (it 
must be equivalent to "spring 
fever" among Greeks.) It 
would certainly be nice for all 
sororities and fraternities to 
own their own houses (like any 
large university), but several 
things stand in the way at this 
point in time. 

For one thing, a fraternity 
must be financially able to 
take the responsibility for 
making house payments, 
should a suitable house be 
located. The fraternity or 
sorority would need their 
national organization's 
backing for any financial 
arrangement they were able 
to make. Some national 
fraternities and sororities 
have special corporations 
which handle the financing of 
their chapters' off-campus 
residential houses. 

According to Dean Fred 

Bosarge, Interfraternity 
Council sponsor, from the 
University's standpoint, the 
financial arrangements would 
be one concern while the 
actual living conditions would 
be still another. Bosarge said 
that the University would 
want all aspects to be well 
thought out and organized so 
that no one would be taken for 
a ride financially, as hap- 
pened to one fraternity 
several years ago. 

But in considering the 
possibilities, it must be 
remembered that there have 
been no additional off -campus 
fraternity and sorority houses 
started since the State Board 
of Education ruling that all 
undergraduate students must 
live on campus. At the time of 
that ruling, those houses 
already in existence were 
simply given "dormitory" 
status and made extensions of 
the campus. 

But the main reason behind 
the lack of newly established 
off-campus residences for 

Greek organizations is * en „ 
about six years ago the < tfd . " 
Board of Education, whi)* idi

How do you live in Natchitoches. * 

Any veteran student can 
give you a hint or two in how to 
get along in Natchitoches and 
on campus, but some of the 
veteran students could take a 
few hints too. 

There are some things every 
student should know about the 
University Post Office. First, 
every piece of mail comes 
through the Natchitoches Post 
Office. This seems like a good 
idea. But in the sort, sort,

A column of personal comments by NSU Campus Ministers (This week's 
column is by Miss My ra Gulled ge. Director of the Baptist Student Union. ) 
An interesting experience 
occurred on Monday as Delta 

Flight 200 was about to take- 
off from Shreveport. To my 
surprise, Rev. Jim Collie from 
Natchitoches First 
Presbyterian Church was also 
boarding the plane. We ex- 
changed greetings and 
discovered that both of us 
were flying to Richmond, 
Virginia. Jim was flying to 
speak for his Seminary 
Convocation, and I was at 
tending a meeting as a 
member of the Baptist 
Mission Board. 

After take-off, the lady in 
the next seat asked me about 
my denomination. She then 
shared with me that she was 
Christian Missionary 
Alliance. I had known her 
church well because several 
family members had served 

with their mission board. As 
our conversation continued, 
she inquired about my family 
and after hearing their names 
she became delighted . Many 
times in years past my 
relatives had been guests in 
her home. She actually knew 
more about my cousin than I 



409 Bienville Street 




What a small world. Here 
was a lady from Buffalo, New 
York, who had touched the life 
of my cousin, a missionary to 
India. She had shared 
something basically good. So 
let us realize in a responsible 
way that the touching of other 
lives happens everyday. It 
seems to me that this may be 
our most productive way of 
making our world a more 
meaningful place. 

In reflection, touching lives 
is a two way thing. I wish I had 
told the lady on the plane how 
much her words have helped 
me, that she had brought a 
dimension to my life that 
would be helpful for a long 
time. When she left me, I 
realized how very close I had 
come to missing this op- 
portunity to talk with her. I 
could have been on a plane to 

Human need is everywhere . 
When we are available to 
reach out and touch, God gives 
us something exciting. I 
believe that mine was a 
unique experience but it may 
be one all of us should be 
having. Sometimes in our 
busy lives we often fail to 
reach out and touch. 

student mail may be a little 
longer getting to you than 
regular mail delivery. By the 
same token, when mailing out 
your letters or packages, they 
will usually lose a day (or 
possibly more) when you go 
through the University Post 
Office. A better idea would be 
to put letters in the outside 
boxes (which are picked up by 
the downtown postal people ) 
or, if you have transportation, 
to take your outgoing mail 
downtown yourself to be sure 
your mom gets her birthday 
card on time. 

Transportation. The Con- 
tinental Bus Lines maintain a 
station, of sorts, here in 
Natchitoches, but they only 
keep office hours. So if you 
want to leave here on the 11 : 10 
p.m. bus to Alexandria ( or 
anywhere else for that mat- 
ter), you'll need to buy your 
ticket during the day. If you're 
taking the bus at very late or 
very early hours, there is a 
taxi' service. Walking back to 
campus at 2 a.m. is depressing 
and a little dangerous. 

If you have your own 
transportation (car, motor- 
cycle, or bicycle) and have 
any trouble with it, there are a 
number of places you can 
have it repaired. Since there is 
no bicycle shop in town, try 
one of the service stations 
near campus.

the making for three years. It 
is supported by two SBA 
grants which total $10,000. 

Phil Bordelon, production

consisting of radio plays, 
taped interviews, sports 
events, live concerts on tape, 
public service an- 
nouncements, and news." 

Prerecorded programs will 
supplement live broadcasting 
in order to provide complete

Attorney General's office fails 
to lead the state, says Triche 

"My major disappointment 
with the present attorney 
general's office," said Pisley 
"Pappy" Triche, "is that they 
are out of touch with reality." 

Triche, who is a candidate 
for the Attorney General Post 
and has served for over 17 
years as a state represen- 
tative, spoke briefly and in- 
formally before faculty 
members and students in the 
Cane River Room of the 
Student Union last Wed- 

He went on to say, "The 
present attorney general's 
office is not telling it like it is. 
They are not acting as an 
independent force and 
providing leadership in the 
intense fight against crime 
and reforming of the present 
penal system." 

Triche added, "We need to 
de-centralize Angola with 
more regional institutions. 
Unfortunately, people don't 
appear to be ready for penal 

reform. We have faced op- 
position from every area 
considered as a likely spot for 
a regional reform institution. 
The present attorney 
general's office will not speak 
out. They simply take a poll of 
the area and find out what the 
citizens want— then go along 
with that decision. I say it's 
time for the attorney general's 
office to speak out and take a 
stand for what is needed. Sure, 
the citizens have a say-so, but 
surely one must realize the 
definite need to decentralize 
Angola, and it's time for the 
attorney general's office to 
make the move in the right 
direction, regardless of public 

Triche accused the present 
attorney general of being 
indecisive and not taking a 
stand, misusing monies and 
projecting false impressions. 

He pointed this out by 
saying, "The attorney 
general's office spends $3,000 

per year in office rental. They 
have office space on two 
floors and a private building in 
New Orleans. I hate to say it," 
Triche added, "but I think it's 
for his own convenience. He 
lives in New Orleans and so 

district attorneys and 
sheriffs throughout the state. 
I spoke at a recent sheriff's 
convention and asked the 
entire group how many 
received information form the 
computer service. Out of the 

fo birds v 
gturday as 
doches, 1 

it's just convenient for his office whole group only one person 
to be there." Triche was raised his hand." 

speaking of the incumbent, 
Bill Guste. 

Triche also charged, "The 
attorney general's office is the 
only department in the state 
that can put all of their staff 
members in an auto at the 
same time with their lunch 
pail. They have 64 cars for 237 
employees. That's as much 
mobility as the United States

The American Gem Society and its members classify 
diamonds according to four factors-Cutting. Color 
Clarity and Carat Weight. Of these, it is cutting, color 
and clarity which determines the per-carai price of 
average-size gems. 

Accuracy of cutting is of prime importance to the 
beauty of your diamond since any delation from ideal 
proportions noticeably affects fire and brilliance of 
the stone. 

Let our trained gem expert explain this and other 
quality points to you in detail when selectme your eem. 

Color refers to the crystal-clear absence of any color 
in the body of a diamond. Value falls as the common 
tinge of yellow appears in the stone. 

Clarity refers to the degree a stone is free of inu nor 
or exterior blemish when \iewed under 10-pouer mas- 
nificaiior.. Our special gem microscope helps us deter- 
mine each diamond s exact clarity grade.

The 'Jacks coach expects 
his big worry will be at the 
quarterback spot. However, 
some of his problem could be 
answered by Jeff Bergeron a 
converted running back with 
4.5 speed. SFA has gone to the 
"Houston Veer" offense to 
take advantage of their speed. 
In addition to the 195-pound

(18-7) , 1972 (20-7), but SFA claimed the Chief 
last year with a 14-13 victory and only the 
second time in the series history. 

There was only one other time that the 



ire and 

lany people might be wondering how all 

igot started. Northwestern and Stephen F. 

ttin agreed back in 1961 that the loser of the 

iiial NSU-SFA clash would cut a tree from 

wn campus, and the winner would have

If Bergeron develops into an 
adequate passer, then the 
Lumberjacks will possess a 
potent attack. Because he will 
have two speedsters at wide 
receivers to throw to in split 
end Aldo Knox, a returning 
letterman, and flanker An- 
thony Washington a transfer 
from Tyler Junior College. 
Both receivers have 4.7 speed. 

SFA will have a big, mobile 
offensive line in tackles Oscar 
Hill (255) and Jesse Borner 
(265), guards Mike Hahn (22) 
and Joe Harvey (265) and 
Larry Scholtz (220) at center. 
The starting tight end will 
probably be Andy Wilkins, a 
220-pound sophomore let- 
terman from Luftkin, Tex. 

One of the second worries 
that faces the SFA coaching 
staff will be the defensive 
interior line. But if the line 
expects to cause problems, the 
'Jacks coaches can breath 
easy about the linebackers 
and secondary. The 
linebackers and secondary 
will possess both speed and 
quickness. Manning the 
linebacker spot will be Odis 
Norris, senior from 
Nacogdoches, and Robert 
Vinson, a transfer from 
Kilgore Junior College. 

In the secondary SFA will 
have strong safety Stacy 
Haynes (195), cornerback Ken 
Andrews (180) and monster 
man Carl Broom (190). 

The series record between 
the two schools is in favor of 
Northwestern, who leads with 
a 21-8-2 Record.

Chief left the campus. The Big Indian had 

been enjoying a semipermanent stay in 
Prather Coliseum, except for brief ap- 
pearances on the the football field. In 
December of 1972 a group of SFA students 
managed to calmly sneak on the campus and 
kidnapp Chief Caddo. They took him back to 
Nacogdoches, but officials at Stephen F. 
Austin reported it next day, and the big statue 
was brought back to Demonland, where he 
reamined until last year. 

As with all things that are part of the 
tradition of Northwestern there were many 
assets that went along with the Chief. It has 
been reported, but never verified that Demon 
coaches have held strategy sessions with the 
Chief. However, it's doubtful that the Chief 
could offer many suggestions since the Chief 
has never been heard to speak.

Roger Boogaerts, a Junior 
out of Shreveport-Captain 
Shreve, is now the Demons' 
No. 1 left linebacker, The 6-1, 
216-pound Boogaerts was the 
No. 2 right linebacker prior to 
the season opener. 

The other starting 
linebacker is Roscoe Lewis, 
who is backed up by George 
Barefiei: and freshman 
Julian Brignac. The 5-foot-10, 
204-pound Brignac was moved 
from fullback to give the 
Demons more depth at 
linebacker. Brignac is from 
New Orleans-Brother Martin. 

In another offensive back-

The power plant station has 
two thermometers. One of 
these records the lowest 
temperature for a 24 hours 
period and the present tem- 
perature. The highest tem- 
perature for a 24 hour period 
can be read by suspending a 
mercury-filled cylinder over 
the face of the thermometer. 
The mercury in the cylinder 
rises until it reaches the 
highest point for the day. The 
thermometers and rain gauge 
are read at 5 o'clock each day. 

While the power plant 
station is not responsible for 
the weather reports heard on 
the radio or read in the local 

paper, Dutile reported that the 
Natchitoches TIMES calls 
once each week for the high 
and low temperature 

According to Dutile, Nat- 
chitoches has had an unusual 
amount of rainfall this year. 
"There's been an awful lot of 
rainfall this year, a 
tremendous amount," said 
Dutile. "It's been high all 
through the year, especially 
this summer— much more 
than usual." 

Dutile reported a great 
reduction in energy use for 
Natchitoches also. "Since the 
recent energy crisis, we have 
noticed a significant cut back 
in energy output for the city." 

Dutile is originally from 
Natchez, La., and graduated 
from Cypress High School in 
1933. He entered the service in 
1942, and served with the anti- 
aircraft division and the Army 
postal service. He was 
stationed in North Africa for 
four months and in Italy for 
two years. 

Dutile is married and has 
two children. His daughter 
attends high school and his son 
is principal at Northwestern 
Junior High School.

Fredrick C. Bosarge 

The course was on advanced 
military subjects. It s purpose 
was to teach army officers to 
operate at a higher level of 
army command and staff 
position. Ranking as one of the 
top 20 in the class, Bosarge 
made the commandant's list. 

"This course was on a 
voluntary basis and is a 
prerequisite for promotion. I 
took it mainly to further my 
military education," said 

After being commissioned 
as a Second Lt. in ROTC, he 
went on active duty from 1961- 
1968. During this time he spent 
three years in Germany and 
one year in Viet Nam. While in

Mrs. Curry, who has participated in 
various opera and theatre productions 
in Natchitoches and Alexandria, will be 
singing two numbers from Broadway's 
"Funny Girl." The two favorite tunes 
are "People" and "Don't Rain on My 
Parade," which were popularized when 
the musical was made into a successful 

Both singers, who have previous 
performance experience with the local 
symphony, will be featured in "I Have

season, is "This Is My Country," and 
the program will possess an air of 

The audience will be asked to join 
Key and Mrs. Curry in the singing of 
"America the Beautiful" and "This Is 
My Country." 

The more than 500 persons expected 
to attend the season's first concert, 
which is free to the public, will find that 
Key and Mrs. Curry are excellent 
vocalists with both musical and stage 

Bunny has participated in various 
opera and theatre productions at 
Northwestern as pianist and per- 
former. She has also done Cenla Little 
Theatre productions in Alexandria. She

years and teaches voice and piano. 

Jim, an interior designer and owner 
of a local furniture store, appeared with 
the Natchitoches-NSU Symphony 
Orchestra's production of "The King 
and I" and recently in "Kismet" with 
the Cenla Little Theatre in Alexandria. 
He is well-known for his church and 
oratorio solo work. 

Because this concert is a tribute to 

the American Bicentennial, the local 
symphony has chosen to perform a 
musical salute to Abraham Lincoln, one 
of this nation's mojt respected 

The salute will be done with the 
symphony performing Aaron Copland's

Tschaikowsky's "Swan Lake Suite." 

The 60-member orchestra, consisting 
of musicians from the university, the 
city and some surrounding towns, is 
scheduled to perform one other major 
concert this fall, that being on Dec. 5 to 
officially open the Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival. 

This spring, the symphony will

The question is are there 

any full-time physicians in Nat- 

According to Cecil Knotts, director of 
student services, it would cost "about 
$30,000" to hire a physician to practice 
full-time in the infirmary. This would 
result in a great increase in fees each 
semester for medical services, he said. 

Presently, Dr. Joseph. A. Thomas is 
the only physician serving Nor- 
thwestern, said Knotts. Dr. Thomas 
was formerly associated with Dr. 
David T. Henry, who recently accepted 
a position in Sherveport. With the ab- 
sence of Dr. Henry, students are 
treated by Dr. Thomas from 5:30 p.m. 
to 6:30p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and 
Thursdays, according to Knotts. 

Knotts also said he has received no 
complaints from students regarding 
medical services— or the lack of 
medical attention. He said, to his 
knowledge, none of the personnel in the 
infirmary have received complaints.

BINGO ! ! It ain't, nowhere. Hot Sauce 
talked with Dr. Galloway and neither of 
them could find it anywhere in the 
univeristy publications pertaining to 
rules and regulations. After a while, Dr. 
Galloway came up with a state board 
ruling from 1961 which said there could 
be no soliciting done on the university 
campuses throughout the state. 

So, if the students wanted to organize 

themselves to buy and sell books they 
could do so, but they could not advertise 
on campus that they were. Actually 
nothing could be done to stop such a 
move— but this type of action would 
completely demolish the present 
system of catching students who have 
stolen books from someone else in the 
hope of selling them back, (which is one 
of the things that does work at this 

The interesting thing to Hot Sauce 
however, is that under the ruling, this 
includes business's off campus using 
the buildings for a place to display their 
ads. This means, if a student finds an 
advertisment listing the com ing of a 
certain band to a certain place of 
business plastered to the window, wall, 
and-or doors of this university they 
should tear them down because it is 
against the law. Students— at last you 
can tear something down on this 
campus and it will not cost you. 

GET READY TO WALK— If what SBA President Greg Ross 
plans, works out, students will find themselves having to walk to 
class. Ross, proposes that one main throughway be closed to 
traffic and one parking lot be shut down.

Ross to stop traffic 
by closing streets 

by Olu Akinrinade 

Northwestern State students who 
drive their cars on campus may have to 
start walking to their various classes 
this semester according to SBA 
president Gregory Ross. 

Ross disclosed that he will introduce 
a legislation to close down part of Sam 
Sibley Dr. in front of the Student Union. 
The portion to be closed to traffic is 
between the intersection of Sam Sibley 
Dr. and Caspari St. And the pedestrian 
cross-walk at the side of the Arts and 
Science building. The parking lot in 
front of the campus Post Office - will 
also be closed down. 

Ross, said this will mean an end to the 
heavy traffic in front of the student 
union. It will guarantee the safety of 
students and make it easier for them to 
cross to their classes. 

He said several universities in the 
country have adopted this type of 

arrangement. He cited University of 
New Mexico and University of 
Oklahoma as examples. 

The issue has been discussed and 
endorsed by the NSU Traffic Com- 
mittee, according to Ross. 

James K. Lee, Chief of University 
Police said he is in support of the 
program. He said several attempts 
have been made in the past to get some 
roads closed on campus but they failed 
because of lack of support. 

Ross said he expects a sizeable op- 
position to this legislation but expects to 
get through with it. 

Plans are also underway to invite 
some Louisiana politicians here during 
the Politician-Week in October. 

The program is designed to get 
students more informed about their 
politicians. Ross said, "This will en- 
courage more students to register as 
voters and probably make them vote in 
the up-coming state elections."

The Way I See It 

Good news for pedestrians 

\ ZThe readers comment ::Z d d c cZZZ ^ 

If you walk on this campus, 
especially if you have no 
alternative (that is, you don't 
have a car), and you've had to 
get to classes in the rain, then 
you know how discourteous 
some drivers can be. And if 
you've walked down almost 
any sidewalk along any of the 
streets on campus, well, then 
you've gone to classes soaked 
to the skin, and not by rain but 
by the splashing you've gotten 
when a car has come whizzing 

That's just one of the 
problems for pedestrians on 
this campus. It also seems like 
drivers don't pay any at- 

tention to the signs at the 
entrances to the campus 
which say that motorists are 
supposed to yield right of way 
to pedestrians. But then 
everyone on this campus has 
become "sign blind." (Maybe 
University Police should start 
giving tickets for this type of 
violation instead of so many 
parking violations.) 

But steps are being taken to 
help a little with these 
problems, as well as the 
traffic problem itself. Even 
though the Senate doesn't 
seem too enthusiastic about 
the ideas, Greg Ross is trying 
to get some heavily traveled 

streets, starting with Sibley 
Drive in front of the Student 
Union, closed off from motor 
vehicle traffic. 

With some 3,140 cars 
registered on this campus, 
plus the untold numbers that 
aren't registered, closing off 
more areas for strictly 
pedestrian walkways is the 
only way to give "walkers" an 
equal chance to get to classes 
on time, without getting hit or 
drenched. And this action 
would certainly improve the 
overall looks of the campus if 
these ideas were extended to 
include a large portion of the 

Your vote counts 

A slight recap of some 
events seems necessary 
before election time. Some 
students have blown certain 
actions of certain local office 
holders totally out of 
proportion. I can't quote you 
exact statements made, but to 
my understanding this is what 
happened. And this is all that 

The last legislative session, 
a bill was brought before the 
Louisiana State Senate that 
would have allowed state 
universities to sell beer (low 
alcoholic beverages) on 
campus. The bill was brought 
up at the end of the session and 
it never made it through, but 
: all that Senator Foshee did, to 

our knowledge, was tack on an 
amendment which, had the 
bill passed, would have ex- 
cluded Northwestern from 
those universities where it 
would have applied. The bill, 
and its amendment, died. 

This may or may not be 
important to you as a voter 
and as a student, but some 
students had expressed the 
need for this action to be 
brought to the attention of new 
students who were not here 
when it took place. 

And whereas Current Sauce 
cannot and will not support 
any candidate, we do feel the 
students of Northwestern have 
the right to know what has 

happened in the past so that 
they can make their own 
decisions when they go to the 
polls in November to vote. 

Speaking of which, any 
student who has not registered 
to vote is urged to do so (by 
Current Sauce) before Oct. 1, 
which is tomorrow. The 
Natchitoches Parish 
Registrar of Voters office is 
located in the Parish Cour- 
thouse downtown and will be 
open today and tomorrow until 
4:30 p. m. October 1 is the 
deadline for registering to 
vote in the upcoming elec- 
tions; the voter registration 
books must be closed one 
month prior to the election. 

To the Editor, 

In reading yesterdays 
(September 16, 1975) Current 
Sauce, I came across the 
article, "How do you live in 
Natchitoches." My following 
comments are in reference to 
the second paragraph which 
concerned the University Post 
Office. Either your in- 
formation is incorrect or I 
have just witnessed the ex- 
ception to University Post 
Office mail service. If my 
memory serves me correctly, 
the Current Sauce is 
distributed on the NSU 
campus on Tuesdays, usually 
in the afternoon. If this is still 
so, and letters and packages 
"usually lose a day (or 
possibly more) when you go 
through the University Post 
Office," how on earth did I 
receive the September 16, 1975 
issue of the Current Sauce 
today, Wednesday, September 
17, 1975? It was mailed from 
the NSU Post Office. 

In my opinion, a few 
questions, which should have 
been posed add answered in 
your article, include: 

1) What time each day is 
mail picked up from the 
University Post Office? 

2) What time each day is 
mail picked up from the 
"outside boxes" by "the 
downtown postal people?" 

3) What time or times each 
day does mail leave the City of 
Natchitoches headed in what 
directions of the state or 
United States and by what 
means of transportation? 

4) How long does a letter or 
package stay in the Nat- 

KNWD is on the air! 

I At long last, they're on the 
air. At least they should be on 
the air. KNWD-FM Stereo got 

an OK from the Federal 
Communications Commission 

; to begin equipment checks, 

r which for all intent and pur- 
poses means that the station 

•can go on the air pending 
inspection by the FCC and 

ifuial licensing. 


[ As it stands now, when 
^everyone picks up this issue of 
Current Sauce, KNWD-FM 
: will have been on the air since 
3b a. m. 

The only special programs 
which have already been 
scheduled for the opening 
weeks of the station are a 
progressive country show on 
Sunday from 3 to 6 p. m. and a 
rhythm and blues show from 9 
to 12 p. m. on Mondays and 

Of course, everything at 
KNWD is still in the planning 
stages, and they're a little 
short handed pending their D. 
J.'s (some of them) receiving 
their licenses. There are still 
some openings on the staff for 
anyone who qualifies as a D. J.

chitoches Downtown Post 
Office, the East Natchitoches 
Station, or the Northwestern 
Station, once it has been 
deposited in these stations? 

5) What amount of time is 
lost in mail delivery because 
of : a) incorrect addresses, b) 
careless wrapping, c) postal 
carrier transportation 
trouble, d) insufficient 
postage, e) lack of ZIP code? 

6) What are the window- 
service hours at all three Post 
Office Stations in Nat- 

I think that a good deal of 
the time people want to blame 
others for their failure to 
accept personal respon- 
sibility. It is each persons 
responsibility to put a correct 
mailing address on a letter, to 
wrap a package securely for 
mailing, to include the ZIP 
Code (which is available in 
most instances upon request), 
and to mail letters and 
packages so that they leave 
Natchitoches the desired day 

In my opinion, your article 
placed unjust cause for slow 
mail service only on the 
University Post Office. It did 
not place any cause on the 
entire United State Postal 
Service or the individual 

If in my comments I have 
made any incorrect 
statements about your article, 
what it said, or the University 
Post Office, I extend my 
apologies. If not, someone else 
has made incorrect 

Name withheld by request. 

( Editors Note: You're right. 

there were a lot of questions 
prompted but not posed by 
that article, but you've given 
me quite a task to answer all 
your questions. But I will try. 

From talking to the postal 
authorities at the downtown 
post office and to personnel at 
both the university station and 
the station in East Nat- 
chitoches, this is what I was 

Mail arrives in Natchitoches 
only once a day, from two 
directions: 5:30 a.m. from 
Alexandria and 8 a.m. (a 

small amount) from 
Shreveport. Likewise, mail 
only leaves Natchitoches once 
a day: 5.30 p.m. to Shreveport 
and 7:30 p.m. to Alexandria. 
So it seems that the NSU 
station is no slower than the 
other two stations, just that be 
being in a small town the mail 
doesn't get the several arrival 
and departure times usually- 
found in larger cities. This is 
where our mistake happened 
to be. 

Furthermore, mail arrives 
at the NSU station at 8 a.m. 

from downtown.

The senate of Northwestern 
State University met on 
September 17, 1975, for an 
emergency session. The 
meeting was called to order at 
6:30 p.m. by Greg Ross.

was to appoint members to 
various SBA committees. 

Thos appointed include:

It's been a long time 
coming, but it should be worth 
the waiting we did. If you 
hadn't gotten the message 
before this, KNWD is a stereo, 
FM station and will be playing 
better music than what you 
would normally get on an AM 
station. Their frequency is 91.7 
and it ought to be good. And it 
will definitely keep getting 



A column of personal comments by NSU Campus Ministers. This week's 
column is by Father John Wakeman, Pastor of Holy Cross Campus Church. 


I've been thinking lately 
about the disappearance of the 
clean, sharp line — the 
blurring of the distinctions 
between things. I don't know 
what boundaries or barriers 
or lines really hold any more. 
We're all sufficiently blase 
now about pushing our ear- 
thbound frontiers skyward 
into outer space. Meanwhile, 
our inner space, the mind with 
its secret environments, is 
being busily probed by the 
spelunkers of inner man, the 
psycologists. Apparently 
nothing is exempt. 

There are some lines that 
we don't even want to think 
about eliminating. Taboos, the 
grosser aberrations, the really 
heinous sins. Nothing like the 
childish compulsions to step or 
not to step on the lines of the 
sidewalk. There are, on the 
other hand, some boundaries 
that confine us simply because 
we don't know what is beyond 
— the terra incognita — like 
outer space used to be. 

Timidity fences us in 
("Let's chunk everything and 
move to Alaska?), although 
shifting social directions is 

common enough. The other 
day a very stable young man 
was in my office discussing a 
change (he's in the middle of 
it) in his life style as casually 
as he would discuss a change 
to a different automobile. 

Physical characteristics 
box us in unreasonably. Whole 
mythologies have been con- 
structed and passionately 
defended. Race, for instance. 

Most of our reformers are 
horizon extenders, or, if you 
like, line erasers. Even the 
"vive la difference" cry 
celebrating our sexuality is 
matched these days by in- 
sistent voices shouting, "What 

The old body-soul 
dichotomy, a sturdy reliable 
for generations of moralists, is 
anathema to contemporary 
philosophers. Basics are a 
concern here. Precisely what 
do we mean by "inside" or 
"outside". Those friends of 
ours addicted to rigorous 
thinking, the mathematicians, 
invented a new discipline, 
topology, to deal with the 
question. Yes, I do feel as if I 
were sliding on a Mobius strip. 

And then we have the in- 
creasingly fuzzy lines between 
good and evil, right and 
wrong. What seemed plain 
and simple to us years back 
now appears exceedingly 
subtle and complex. 

My window overlooks a 
cemetery. That peaceful 
scene brings to mind at least 
one distinction I'm sure of ... 
and then, I think of this week's 
news about Karen Quinlan. 
They don't know if she's dead 
or alive. Her body is being 
sustained by machines and the 
doctors say her brain is gone. 
Her parents think they should 
pull the plug.

Library receives 
DuCournau donation 

and the labeling of the books 
for shipment to the university. 





114 Kwy.1 S. 
Ph. 352-8940 

A large shipment of books 
from San Francisco, dating 
back to the 1770's has just 
arrived at the Eugene P. 
Watson Library on the NSU 
campus, according to John 
Price, Head of Special 
Collections at Northwestern. 

"The package of books, 
weighing over a ton, was 
donated to the university by J. 
A. DuCournau, as a gift to 
Northwestern," said Price. 

DuCournau, a former vice 
president of the Wells Fargo 
Bank in San Francisco, now 
lives at the Hope Plantation in 
Natchitoches Parish. 
DuCournau, who is the oldest 
living captain of a Nor- 
thwestern football team, and 
his wife ended up in Nat- 
chitoches really by chance. 
They were passing through 
town on their way to England 
for a vacation when they 
stopped at the plantation to 
spend a few days and they 
enjoyed it so much here that 
they just decided to stay. 

Price flew to San Francisco 
to take care of the packaging 

John D. Boden, vice 
president of the Wells Fargo 
Bank assisted Price in 
preparing the books for 
shipment. "Boden spoke very 
highly of Ducournau while I 
was in San Francisco," Price 

The only cost to Nor- 
thwestern was shipment of the 
books and travel expenses in 
arranging that transportation. 

The package of the books 
contains topics of art and 
history, some of which are no 
longer in print. 

The books will go on exhibit 
at the library some time this 

"The gift comes at a good 
time," said Price, "because of 
the hard economic times and 
the limited budget the library 

"The Louisiana Room is 
dependent on gifts such as this 
because buying books would 
be too expensive for the 
University's budget," said

In explaining his pass 
blocking, Foster said, 
"You've got to drop back and 
wait for him to come to you. 
Be patient and stay in front of 
your man. There's no way he 
will beat you if you stay 
between him and the quar- 

In contrast, Foster said, 
"You've got to fire out and be 
aggressive on a running 
play— and you've got to stick 
with your man." 

Apparently, Foster is doing 
one heck'uva job in his 
blocking on runs and passes. 

"I was impressed with 

Stan's effort against SFA 
more than anything," Peace 
said of his young lineman. "It 
seemed we got good yardage 
every time we went to his side 
of the field— and he was 
giving just as much effort 
every time we went to the 
opposite side. Again, that's 
just the way he plays in 

Foster said the one area he 
has improved on most since 
last season was pass 
protection. "I think all our 
offensive line- man have 
improved in this area (pass 
protection)," Foster said. 
"We know we've got to give 
our quarterback time to throw 
if we expect to win." 

thwestern were making their 
presence known. Petey Perot 
(289) and Ed Hernandez (280) 
combined for one fourth down 
defensive play in the fourth 
quarter while linebacker 
George Barefield and Perot 
teamed ud for the other. 

Jarvis Blinks got the first of 
two Demons interceptions 
early in the fourth quarter. 
Blinks, who is the only senior 
on the team, snared a Milton 
Driskell pass and returned it 
30 yards to the DSU 12. The 
Demons, however, could not 
cash in and were forced to 

After the Statesmen were 
forced to punt NSU's offense 
came to life. With the ball 
resting on the Northwestern 48 
yard line, Butch Ballard 
worked the Demons to the 
DSU 42 yard line. With second 
and seven Ballard sent Mike 
Almond speeding down the 
sidelines where he laid a 42- 
yard touchdown bomb into 
Almonds's hands. Almond 
easily beat the defender and 
waltzed into the end zone. 
Pendergraft added the extra 
point and the Demons were 
ahead to stay. 

The defense was not through 
yet. With Delta State driving, 
safety Mike Maggio picked off 
a Bobby Barrett pass to kill 
the Statesmen desperation 
drive and return it 23 yards. 

Ballard completed 10 to 18 
passes for 103 yards and one 
touchdown. He did have two 
intercepted. One was batted 
into the air by a Demon 
receiver and one Ballard was 
forced to throw on the run. 

"Butch had a pretty good 
game," Williams said, "He 
did make several mistakes, 
but he did handle the team 
real well, I am please with his 
performance tonight." 

It proved to be another disasterous week for the 
panal as there were four upsets and two ties. Jim 
Johnson of the NSU News Bureau came out with 
the best record of the week when he posted 8-7. 
Student predictor, Jimmy Hyams of the Nat- 
chitocjhes Times tied with Steve Colwell for an 7 
8. Sports Editor Philip Timothy was so elated the 

NSU victory he forgot to figure his record out. 

This weeks guest will be Dean Fred Bosarge for 
the Faculty and John O. Wright for the students. 
After three weeks the panal is lead by Colwell and 
the Faculty who each have a 28-17 record and 
Sports Editor. Timothy is 27-18 . The students, 
who are busy studying are last with 25-20.

Believe it or not— NSU's old 
library was once the scene of a 
tremendous scandal! 

The old library located on 
the east side of the NSU 
campus across from Caldwell 
Hall was built during the term 
of Governor Richard Webster 
Leche. Leche was one of 
Louisiana's most dynamic 
governors and served from 
1936 to 1939, at which time he 
resigned from office. Leche 
was convicted in 1940 of mail 
fraud and sentenced to 10 
years in prison. 

The library on the then 
Louisiana State Normal 
School campus was one of 
several in the state named 
after Leche. It was also one of 
several buildings in the state 
that got a new name shorlty 
after Leche was convicted. 

The name given the library 
after the change was the 
Scharlie Russell Library, 
chosen because of the faithful 
service of the librarian, Mrs. 

Leche was one of the most 
colorful governors in 
Louisiana history. He was 
born in New Orleans in May of 
1898, the grandson of a former 
Confederate Army Captain. 
Leche received his education 
in New Orleans and graduated 
from Warren Easton High 
School. He was a student in the 
Tulane Law School when 
World War I began and he 
volunteered his services to the 
army and was sent to Officers' 
Training Camp at Plattsburg, 
New York. There Leche 
contracted influenza and was 
transferred to Fort Camp at

charge of mail fraud in con- 
nection with the sale of trucks 
to the Louisiana State High- 
way commission during his 
gubernatorial tenure. His 10 
year sentence was tne stiffest 
given in Federal Courts for a 
simular offense. Leche was 
paroled after three and one- 
half years in prison. He was 
said to have defrauded the 
state of $31,000. 

Leche received a 
presidental pardon from 
President Harry S. Truman 
four days before Truman left 
office. Leche was given 
complete restitution of all his 
civil rights on Jan. 16, 1953. He 
died in 1971.

degree. He practiced law in 
New Orleans and became 
legal advisor to Governor 
Oscar K. Allen in 1922. On 
September 19, 1934, Leche was 
appointed to the Court of 
Appeals. He ran for the 
governor's position and was 
elected in 1936. 

At the time of his election, 
Leche was young and hand- 
some, the dashing, debonai re 
man about town. He was 
looked upon by many as a 
contender for the presidency

this local case, the name was changed from Leche

The Northwestern State 
University ROTC armory 
which was located on Jef- 
ferson St., has completed its 
move to the newly renovated 
North Hall, on Sept. 19. 

Major Taylor, assistant 
PMS, Professor of Military 
Sciences, said new 
armory has an inside ten point 
rifle range, three classrooms, 
administrative offices, cadet 
offices and a supply room. 

The renovation which 
started two years ago was 
done by the university con- 
struction workers and by 
National Guardsmen as part 
of their summer training. This 
project was funded by NSU. 

Violinist Robert Price will 
be one of the featured soloists 
for the pops concert the 
State University Symphony 
Orchestra will present tonight 
Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. on the river 
front stage in historic 
downtown Natchitoches. 

Price, who is the orchestra's 
concertmaster and for two 
years was its interim con- 
ductor will be performing 
Saint-Saens' "Havanaise " 
and Novacek' c . "Perpetuum 
Mobile" as one of the features 
of the orchestra's first concert 
of its 10th anniversary season. 

The theme of the outdoor 
concert is "This Is My 
Country" and the program is a 
tribute to the American 
Bicentennial. Conducting will 

be Dr. J. Robert Smith, 
chairman of the Department 
of Music at Northwestern. 

Prior to joining the music 
department faculty at Nor- 
thwestern five years ago, 
Price was a professional 
musician for eight years in the 
U.S. Air Force Symphony 
Orchestra in Washington, 
D.C., where he also did 
freelance work in groups 
which recorded popular music 
and television commercials. As 
an orchestral violinist, he has 
played under the baton of such 
conductors as Leonard Bern- 
stein, Charles Munch, Eleazar 
DeCarvallo, Richard Burgin, 
Col. Arnold Gabriel and 
composer Aaron Copland. 

Price, who is a native of 

Shreveport, will this year 
become the assistant con- 
certmaster of the Rapides 
Symphony Orchestra in 

The NSU violinist attend 
Fair Park High School and 
holds degrees from Centenary 
College and the University of 
Arkansas. He is formerly 
engaged in research for his 
Doctoral Dissertation at the 
Catholic Univeristy of 
America in Washington, D.C. 

In addition to being featured 
in two symphonic numbers, 
Price will join local musicians 
Ed Huey and Rev. Jim 
Jones— they make up the 
Driscol Mountain Boys Plue 
One — in performing 
"Hullabaloo," a country- 
western tune that was quite 
popular with our audience last 

"This will give Bob Price an 
opportunity to show the 
audience some of his ver- 
satility," said Smith. 

The orchestra's first concert 
program of the 1975-76 season 
will feature music from 
several different composition 
sytles, such as Broadway, 
ballet, symphonic, country- 

western, patriotic" 
precision marches.

Why Prudhomme Hall and 
the East wing of Caddo Hall 
were closed and what's going 
to happen to all the old dor- 
mitories on campus are some 
of the questions concerning 
housing that many Nor- 
thwestern students wanted 
answers to. 

"Prudhomme is the oldest 
male dormitory on the Nor- 
thwestern's campus and is in 
the worst condition. It's not a 
good impression on incoming 
freshmen," says Mrs. Bar- 
bara Gillis, Director of 
Housing. "The basic goal for 
closing Prudhomme and the 
wing in Caddo was 
economical. We'd like to give 
the students what they ask for 
and what we feel they need. 
The only way to do this would 
be to cut as many corners as 

possible money-wise." 

According to Mrs. Gillis, S. 
Rapides was arbritarily 
chosen as a housing facility 
for the residents of 
Prudhomme and residents of 
E. Caddo were moved into 
other sections of the dor- 
mitory where there was one 
person per room, or into 
vacant rooms. 

Prudhomme Hall will not be 
torn down, as rumored last 
spring semester. Instead the 
building, which holds 254, will 
be used for special housing 
and workshops like Bossier 

With the closing of 
Prudhomme and the wing in 
Caddo, money will be saved by 
having no staff to pay. This 
allows for money to be used on 
providing comfortable places 










for men as well as women 
students to live. 

"This method of saving 
would be better than hiking 
the rent fee on students," says 
Mrs. Gillis. 

When asked would any of 
the old dormitories be 
renovated, Mrs. Gillis stated 
that the five old buildings, 
Bienville Dining Hall, Agnes 
Morris Hall, Carondelet Hall, 
Kate Chopin Hall, and 
Audubon Hall have been off of 
housing's property inventory 
for some time now. A certain 
amount of funds have been 
appropriated to have the 
buildings torn down, with the 
first being Bienville. 

Salvaging of the contents of 
the buildings has already 
begun and other items will be 
sold by bids. 

A definite date has not been 
set as to when the buildings 
will be torn down, but they will 
be torn down by the lowest 
bidding company.

The Louisiana Facility Planning and 
Control Department has awarded a 
contract for $645,875 to Industrial 
Design and Construction, Inc., of 
Natchitoches for the first phase of the 
78-acre outdoor recreation complex. 

The contractor began this week 
moving onto the project site, which is 
located west of the Highway 1 bypass. 
Construction is to begin immediately 
and is to be completed in 300 days, 
according to terms of the contract. 

Included in the construction of the 
first phase of the recreation complex 
are an outdoor Olympic-size swimming 
pool, a modern pool service building, a 
roadway to the facility and parking lots 
for some 70 automobiles. 

The swimming pool will be a 50-meter 
L-shaped pool and will include a 16-foot- 
deep diving area which will be 
available to scuba diving and other 
water recreational programs. The pool 
service building will include dressing 
facilities, a first aid room, snack bar 
and pavilion. 

Designed by J. M. Gabriel and 
Associates of Lake Charles, the outdoor 
recreation complex is being built 
without the use of state funds. 

The construction of the total complex 
is being financed by student fees 
assessed full-time students and by a 
grant totaling nearly $500,000 from the 
U. S. Department of Interior's Bureau 
of Outdoor Recreation. The grant was

the U. S. House of Represen- 
'approved metric legislation by a 
J f 300 to 63 last month. The 

legislation is nearly identical to that 
approved by the House Subcommittee 
that held extensive hearings in April 
and May of this year. 

Odom said the legislation will now 
move to the Senate for consideration. 
The Senate Commerce Committee has 
indicated it may wish to hold brief 
hearings, possibly in late October. 
Favorable action in the Senate is 
considered likely by the end of 1975. 

The metric information chief stated 
that schools across the United States 
are showing a growing awareness of the 
need to teach more metric courses. 
Textbook publishers and producers of 
other educational materials are aware 
of this trend and are beginning to 
respond with a wide variety of teaching 

According to the National Bureau of 
Standards, 29 states have had some 
type of formal action by their state 
legislatures and school boards. The 
Louisiana Legislature is one of seven 
state legislatures that have enacted 
laws directing action in metric 

Odom told Whittington that most 
countries of the world are either metric 
or in the process of converting to 
metric. Those countries not already 
officially changing to metric are 
Brunei, Burma, Liberia, Yemen and 
the United States. 

A directive of the Common Market, 
adopted in October of 1971, stated that 
by 1978 all U. S. exporters to the nine 
Common Market countries will be 
required to indicate dimensions in 
metric units. 

In industry, the American National 
Metric Council was formed in 1973 to 
help guide the change to metric for the 
industrial and commercial segments of 
our society. 

And more recently, the Distilled 
Spirits Counsil of the United States and 
the International Amateur Athletic 
Federation have announced that they 
are moving into metric usage in the 
near future. 

obtained through the Louisiana State 
Parks and Recreation Commission. 

When construction on the first phase 
has been completed, which is expected 
to be late next summer or early next 
fall, both the swimming pool and ser- 
vice building will be ready for 
operation . 

Phase two of the recreation complex, 
which is to be constructed under a 
separate contract, will include such 
outdoor recreational features as tennis 
and golf pro shop, four regulation tennis 
courts, a nine-hole golf course, a 
miniature golf course and landscaped 
picnic areas. 

More than 100 Northwestern students 
have been involved in the actual 
planning of the recreational complex 
since the proposal for the facility was 
presented to the student body in 1972. 
Faculty and staff members are serving 
as advisers on the project. 

Coordinating the planning of the 
facility for the Northwestern students is 
the Research and Development 
Committee of the Student Union 
Governing Board at NSU. The chair- 
man of the committee is Dock Voorhies, 

.vnior social work major from Bunkie. 

"Right now," said Voorhies, "we are 
ready to begin construction on phase 
one. While this is being done, the 
members of the committee will be 
studying the final plans for the second 
phase, in addition to setting policies for 
\the use of the pool and service building. 
The important thing is that in the 
second phase of the project we must be 
sure of what we want to be included as 
features. We had to make several 

alterations in the first phase." 

Robert Wilson, ( Student Union 
director) and adviser to the Student 
Union Governing Board, said the 
awarding of the contract and the 
beginning of construction on the first 
phase was delayed because of ad- 
justments which had to be made in the 
financial arrangements. This, he said, 
was due to inflationary building costs 
and increases in interest rates for 

"The students had wanted a social 
building, but our grant would not cover 
its construction," said Wilson. "The 
students would have had to pay for it 
through assessed fees, so it was 
dropped from the original drawings in 
order that we could maintain quality in 
our top-priority features, such as the 
swimming pool." 

Full-time students will be given free 
use of the recreational complex, and 
memberships will be offered to the 
general public at a cost equal to the fees 
paid by the students. The complex will 
not be a varsity athletic facility. 

"We know of no college or university 
within this state or in any of the 
surrounding states that has combined 
recreational facilities on one site as we 
have planned," said Voorhies. "The 
Association of College Unions tells us 
that they are not aware of this having 
been done on any campus in this 

"The students have been working 
with the administration from the 
university and with representatives of

The NSU Theatre opens its 1975-76 
Season tomorrow at 7:30 p. m. with 
David Rabe's "Sticks and Bones." 
Director, Ray Schexnider said tickets 
can be picked up at the Box Office 
between the hours of 1-5 with an ID 
from students and faculty season 
tickets are still on sale for $1. 

The drama is about a young Viet- 
namese Veteran who was blinded in 
battle and returns home to see his 
family who has very little un- 
derstanding of the nature of his ex- 
periences and the meaning of the war 

Schexnider said, "David Rabe does 
not intend that "Sticks and Bones" 
hould be perceived as a self-righteous, 
audience baiting, protest play, devoted 
to habitual or anti-war propaganda. He 
does, however, lift the playwright's 
intuitive mirror to the face of reality 
and asks that we gaze into our images." 

The play will also be NSU's entry in 
the American College Theatre Festival 
in Baton Rouge October 17-20 where the 
cast and crew will compete for State 

The winner of the competition goes to 
the regionals in Fort Worth and then the 
nationals in Washington D. C. For the 
past three years, NSU has placed 
second in the State competition and 
Schexnider hopes this will be the year 
to break into first. 

The American College Theatre 
Festival is an annual event presented 
by the John F. Kennedy Center of the 
Performing Arts and the Alliances for 
Arts Education. It is produced by the 
American Theatre Association and 
sponsored by the AMOCO Oil Company. 

Appearing in the play are Rick 
Barnickel, Ginni LeLong, David 
Pickens, Kevin Kobal, Jamie Sanders 
and Patty Humphreys.

Are you kidding? The City Police don't 
want our ticket writers messing up 
their flow of traffic like they have ours. 
Hot Sauce talked with University Police 
Chief Lee about this problem and was 
informed that they, along with Dr. 
Galloway, have been trying for some 
time to talk with Highway Department 
Engineers trying to get a light put up 
there or something to help control the 
traffic. As of yet nothing has been done. 
Chief Lee said that the engineers feel 
there is no need for a light. What has to 
be done to show the need? Does traffic 
have to back up all the way to 
Alexandria?? Oh, Hot Sauce is sorry — 
He remembers how wise the engineers 
are. They don't think that a light is 
needed at the four way intersection at 
Hwy. No. 1 either. Hot Sauce guesses 
that someone has to get hurt badly or 
killed in order for change

We have an agreement with the 
bookstore — we leave them alone and 

stay off their back and they advertise 
with us thus giving us some of the 
money back that we spend over there. 
Not really — Hot Sauce talked with Dr. 
Galloway who is in charge of bookstore 
activities and he told us advertising 
was done in the Current Sauce because 
it was one of the surest ways to let 
people know what the bookstore of- 
fered. Funny thing about that though — 
they never tell you that what they have 
will take you two semesters to pay for,

^4 new look for streets— pedestrian walkways 

I have gotten a lot of "flack" 
about proposed plans to 
close the road in front of the 
Student Union. You would 
think Greg Ross had gone out 
during the noon rush hour and 
set up a barricade himself. 

My point is, was, and will 
continue to be that something, 
anything, needs to be done to 
alleviate the traffic problem 
on this campus. Other 
universities have done this by 
closing certain congested 
streets to vehicle traffic at 
least during major class 
hours, say from 9 a.m. to 3 
p.m. At these universities all 
students, and faculty and staff 
members, park in one of 
maybe three main parking 
lots, and walk to class. (Their 
parking lots were equivalent 
to our lots in front of Sabine 
and Rapides and at the 

Coliseum. ) 

Even cities, which I might 
add have a lot bigger traffic 
problems than NSU (for 
example, the French Quarter 
section of New Orleans), close 
off certain streets to vehicle 

Simply because Ross says 
he is going to shut down the 
street, that doesn't 
necessarily mean that it's 
going to happen. I would think 
that students and SBA officers 
and senators should try to help 
Ross find some answers to our 
problems instead of con- 
demning everthing he 
suggests. At least he has some 
ideas, which is more than can 
be said for some SBA office 

Maybe the proposed closing 
of Sibley Drive in front of the 

Student Union wouldn't work, 
but more study by people who 
know something about it needs 
to be done before everyone 
condemns Ross for trying to 
come up with solutions. 

Personally, I'm for doing 
away with parking stickers 
altogether, for a "Park and 
Walk" campaign, for opening 
the drive under the Union 
Bridge, and generally cutting 
all the red tape and traffic 
snarls anyway we can. 

And if closing certain 
streets during certain hours 
(like 8 to 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 
1 p.m.), will help, then lets get 
a workable plan and do it 
instead of sitting on our hands. 

I don't think this campus is 
large enough for students to 
worry about having to walk to 

Mocking elections? 

All of the SBA and SGA 
presidents from all the state 
universities recently met here 
at NSU and came up with a 
"fun" idea. October 23, before 
the November 1 elections, 
students will be able to vote on 

campus in a MOCK elections 
of state officials. All the 
results will be sent to Monroe 
(Northeast Louisiana 
University) for tabulation and 
the results of the state-wide 
college student poll is to be 
sent to the United Press In- 

ternational for state-wide and 
nation-wide distribution. 

As of press time, Ross still 
hadn't brought it up, so it's 
debatable whether or not it 
will take place, but be looking 
for it.

C The readers comment ) 

To the Editor 

This letter concerns the 
ignorance involved in Greg 
Ross' decision to try to close 
the road in front of the Student 
Union and eventually the 
entire campus to traffic. 

First of all, when Ross 
brought this idea before the 
Senate he met with total op- 
position, but hard-headed as 
he is, he continued with his 
plans. Then, after he got 
support from the editor of this 
paper, he got bigger ideas to 
eventually close down the 
entire campus. 

If there is 300 or more cars 
on campus, the closing of one 

road will only congest the rest 
of the campus. Instead of 
insuring the safety of 
pedestrians, this move would 
only jeopardize them. And if 
the adjacent parking lot is 
closed, I would love to see 
University Police refund the 
money of everyone who 
brought a parking sticker for 
that lot. 

In response to the editorial 
written in last week's paper in 
support of this action, I would 
only hope that any NSU 
student that has been splashed 
by a car has the sense to get 
out of the way next time he 
stands by a puddle and sees a 

car coming. Also, someone 
who drives to class will keep 
drier than someone who walks 
to class. 

And in closing, if Greg Ross 
plans to unite the campus on a 
common purpose, let's hope 
it's one of common good and 
advantage for the students.

Access to student records defined 
in statement of general policy 

(Editor's Note: The 
following policy concerning 
the Family Education and 
Privacy Act of 1974 (the 
Buckley Amendment) is the 
official policy of the 
University concerning access 
to and utilization of student 
records. Any questions con- 
cerning this policy may be 
directed to Dr. Richard 
Galloway, vice president of 

The policy of Northwestern 
State University with respect 
to the release of information 
on students is based on the 
premise that a student's 
record is confidential and 
must be protected from those 
who would use it for other than 
legitimate purposes. At the 
same time, the policy must be 
flexible enough so as not to 
hamper the student, the 
University, or the community 
in the pursuit of legitimate 

Written authorization 

Student records are con- 
fidential. Release of in- 
formation on students or- 
dinarily will be made only on 
the written request or 
authorization of the student 
himself. This applies with 
equal force to the issuance of 
transcripts. Telephone 
requests for transcripts will 
not be honored nor will 
requests for transcripts be 
honored which have been 
made by the parent, spouse or 
prospective employer of an 
adult student except on 
authorization from the 
student. The parent of a 
student under eighteen years 
of age may, however, be 
provided a copy of such 
student's transcript for his or 
her own use on written 
request. Similarly, in keeping 
with recognized practices, 
transcripts may be issued on 
written requests to institutions 
from which a student has 
graduated or transferred; 
institutions to which a student 
transfers, or to organizations 
which sponsor a student 
provided the student concurs 
in the request. 

Release of information 

Ordinarily, the only in- 
formation furnished inquirers 
concerning students will be 
material contained in the 
student telephone directory. If 
a student chooses not to have 
his name listed in the student 
directory his name will be 
omitted and this information 
will not be furnished to those 
making inquiries. 

The University only 
maintains such records on 
students as are necessary for 
the efficient, effective and 
expedient conduct of business. 
Inasmuch, then, as such 
records are maintained 
primarily for intramural use, 
information contained in 
student records will be 
released to outside in- 
vestigating agencies only on 
the written consent of the 
student subject of an in- 
vestigation. Once consent has 
been received by the 
University, information 
requested from academic 
records of students, students' 
permanent folders (con- 
taining admissions creden- 
tials, transcripts, etc.), and 
students' personnel records 
may be released to properly 
identified investigators 
through authorized staff 
personnel in the Office of the 
Vice President of Student 
Affairs. Investigators must 
adequately identify them- 
selves through the display of 
official credentials, indicate 
the agency they represent and 
demonstrate a satisfactory 
basis for their request, such as 
a background investigation 
for prospective employment. 
Even as to investigating 
agencies, information in 
student records will be 
withheld if the student does 
not want his records reviewed. 
When such a request is made 
the Vice President of Student 
Affairs, on being notified, will 
make those measures to in- 
sure that the student's request 
is not breached. The 
University, of course, is 
obliged to provide information 

on students pursuant to court 
orders or subpoenas. 

The University recognizes 
research by graduate 
students, faculty, and ad- 
ministrative staff as a fun- 
damental component of its 
overall mission. Occasionally 
such research involves the use 
of students and data extracted 
from student records which is 
essentially confidential. 
Approval to conduct such 
research must first be ob- 
tained from the person in 
charge of the involved 
discipline. Following this, 
authorization to utilize 
students or student records 
must be obtained from the 
Vice President of Student 
Affairs and-or his authorized 
agent. In such instances the 
office keeping the records 
shall make every effort to 
insure the anonymity of 
identifying information 
contained in the records 

Records of disciplinary 
action taken by the University 
against students are main- 
tained for intramural pur- 
poses, hence, information 
relating thereto should be 
released to inquirers only on 
written authorization of 
students concerned. However, 
notices of suspension for non- 
academic reason will continue 
to be shown on the official 
transcript, will be a per- 
manent part of the transcript, 
and will be governed by the 
same release-authorization 
requirements as the total 

Academic records 

Individual faculty members 
may review academic records 
of their students to the extent 
that such review is in the 
service of legitimate 
educational interests. 

Types of educational records 

At least once a year Nor- 
thwestern State University 
will publish in the student 
newspaper, The Current 
Sauce, and the Alumni 
Columns, and have com- 
municated over the student 
radio station KNWD, the fact 
that certain records are kept 
on students and that these 
records are available to 
students and that the students 
may have the right to 
challenge the contents of these 
records. The types of 
educational records that are 
kept on students at Nor- 
thwestern State University 
are as follows: 

1. Instructors: A record is 
maintained on each student by 
the instructor. Such things as 
attendance, test grades, 
reports, etc., are kept by the 
instructor in a Class Record 
Book. The instructor treats 
the materials in the Class 
Record Book in a confidential 
manner and a student's marks 
in the class can only be 
divulged to the student. At the 
end of the semester, the Class 
Record Book is turned in to the 
Registrar's office where it is 
kept for five years and then 

2. Academic Deans: Each 
academic dean keeps in his 
office the matriculation 
records of the student as well 
as the curricula being 
followed by each student. Only 
material pertaining to a 
student's matriculation is kept 
in these records, as well as his 
academic standing. Some 
incidental materials are kept, 
such as newspaper articles, 
honors, a supervising 
teacher's evaluation of a 
student teacher, etc. No one 
has access to these records 
except the Dean or his agent. 
Should a student change 
colleges within the University 
his record is then transferred 
in its entirety to his new Dean. 
These records are unofficial 
and can be reviewed in the 
Academic Dean's office. 
These records are to be kept 
ten years and then destroyed. 

3. Academic Advisors: At 
Northwestern State 
University the academic 
advisor is generally 
designated as the academic 
department head, although 

the academic department 
head may designate one of the 
faculty members within his 
department to act as the 
advisor to the student. If the 
student changes majors, this 
record is transferred to his 
new adviser. The material 
contained in this record is only 
of an academic nature, in- 
dicating the past and present 
matriculation record, his 
current academic status, as 
well as the curriculum in 
which the student is enrolled. 
Only the academic advisor 
has access to this record and it 
can be reviewed by the 
student in the academic ad- 
visor's office. These records 
are unofficial. These records 
are placed in an inactive 
status if the student interrupts 
his education and destroyed in 
ten years after the student 
leaves the University. 

4. The Dean of Student 
Personnel: The Dean of 
Student Personnel maintains 
records with most of the 
personal identifying material 
on a student. The file contains 
the personal data form, as 
well as the student's 
autobiography that he or she 
has written in orientation 
class, his dormitory progress 
reports, housing data, and 
past matriculation records, as 
well as the current curriculum 
in which the student is 
enrolled, test data from the 
American College Testing 
program, and any 
correspondence that may 
have taken place between the 
student and members of his 
department, as well as 
miscellaneous administrative 
reports. The record may also 
contain records of any past 
disciplinary problems or 
disciplinary action that may 
have been brought against the 
student. The student can 
review this record in the Dean 
of Student Personnel's office. 
Only authorized Student Af- 
fairs' staff have access to 
these records. The records are 
destroyed five years after the 
student leaves the University. 

5. Student Infirmary: The 
student who enrolls full-time 
in the University is required to 
furnish a medical 
examination report which not 
only includes a current 
medical examination prior to 
the student's entrance to the 
University, but the student's 
past medical history prior to 
admission to the University. 
Records are kept on medical 
problems reported by the 
student as well as treatment 
procedures. The only people 
who have access to these 
records are the University 
physicians and nurses. Every 
effort is made to protect the 
physician-patient relationship 
and to safeguard all con- 
fidences. The student cannot 
review these records but his 
personal physician, acting in 
his behalf, can review the 

6. The Vice President of 
Student Affairs: The records 
kept by the Vice President of 
Student Affairs are the 
students' home address, the 
students' school address, the 
students' grades of the 
previous semester, and the 
student's class schedule. 

Registrar's Office 
keeper of the 
academic records 

is the 
of the 

student here at the University. 
The Student's application for 
admission to the University 
and other materials of an 
academic nature are kept in 
this office. The academic 
records in the Registrar's 
Office are permanent. The 
student can review his or her 
record in that office. 


8. Financial Aids Office: 
students who are receiving 
scholarships, loans from state 
and federal sources, or who 
are student workers and 
receive some financial 
assistance through the 
University have records that 
are kept in this office. The 
student can review all 

9. Counseling Service 
Records: Information con- 
tained in student records 
which are maintained by the 
various University counseling 
services are strictly con- 
fidential and released to

These records are destroyed 
five years after the student

Students cannot review the 
materials in these records, but 
his personal physician or 
other appropriate professional 
persons may review these 

10. Director of Student 
Services: Records on Student 
Body Association Loans, 
agency loans, and student 
insurance are kept in the 
office of the Director of 
Student Services. No one has 
access to these records except 
the Director of Student Ser- 
vices or his agent. Students 
may review these records in 
the Director of Student Ser- 
vices' office. 

11. Placement Office: 
Records are kept in the 
Placement Office for those 
students who register and are 
in need of assistance in finding 
jobs. The student's record is 
released only to those 
organizations or individuals 
authorized by the student to 
have the material contained in 
the placement folder. The 
student can review the 
material in the placement 
folder, including letters of 
reference, if he has not waived 
his right to review these let- 
ters of reference. If the 
student waives his rights to 
review the letters of 
reference, this request can 
only be reinstated if those who 
wrote the recommendations 
agree. Placement records are 
kept for an indefinite period of 
time. When, in the opinion of 
the placement officer, the 
student can no longer be 
adequately served by having 
this placement record 
properly maintained they are 
destroyed at the discretion of 
the placement officer. 

12. Veterans' Affairs Office: 
Military service records on all 
veterans receiving assistance 
from the Veterans' Ad- 
ministration are kept in the 
Veterans' Administration 
office. The student veteran 
has a right to review these 
records with the Coordinator 
of the Office of Veterans' 

13. Department of Testing: 
The Department of Testing 
maintains a record of test 
scores submitted to the 
University, and the results of 
the University's Advanced 
Standing Examination and the 
English Proficiency 
Examination for doctoral 
students. These records are 
available to the student, his-

AsNLU ' steals ' a 34-20 victory 

A .L . still looking for answer 

by Philip Timothy 
Sauce Sports Editor 

jj "I don't know what it is," 
said head coach A. L. 
Williams, "We don't play well 
in the first half, but we always 
do real well in the second 

"The last three games have 
been like that. If I knew what 
caused it I would certainly 
' work on it." 

It has been the same 
old story in the last three 
games the Demons will let the 
opponents run at will in the 
jfirst half. After half time 
though, Northwestern looks 
like a changed ball club. They 
come out and play inspired 

Saturday Night was no 

In the first half Northeast 
ran and passed its way 
through the Demon defense 
for 259 yards in total offense. 
Joe Bruner, the Indians ace 
quarterback, completed 11-13 
passes for 128 yards, while 
Indian running backs plowed 
for almost 131 yards. Tne 
scoreboard showed at the half 
the Indians ahead 24-14. 

But it shouldn't have been 
that way at all. Even though 
the Demon defense was not 
having that well of a night the 
offense sure was. 

Northwestern led by Butch 

three sustained drives of 56, 
74, and 38, but the Demons 
managed to score on only two 
of those drives. 

"I thought that our offense 
did a find job tonight, com- 
mented Williams, "The of- 
fensive line was outstanding. 
Only once or twice did they 
break down in their pass 

"In the first half we missed 
one opportunity to score that 
really hurt us. I think that if 
the half time score was seven 
points closer then Dennis 
Pendergraft, who is a very 
good kicker with good range, 
could have caused them a 

Ballard and Stuart Wright had & eat deal of trouble in the 

second half. 

In the second half the 
Demon defense quickly 
asserted itself and promptly 
stopped the Indians cold on 
their first series of plays. 

Then Butch Ballard and 
company took over and 
promptly marched 65 yards 







down the field to score, 
making it 24-20 in favor of 
Northeast. The Demons failed 
on the two point conversion 
when Ballard was tackled just 
inches from the goal line. 

"Butch rolled to his right. 
He was going to throw, but 
tucked the ball under his arm 
and started to run. I guess he 
saw something, because he 
started to throw again, but 
changed his mind and tried to 
run. Had he gone ahead and 
run it, I think that he would 
have taken it on in," said 

Northwestern's defense was 
so fired up that they limited 
the Indians attack to only 50 
totals yard in the second half. 
Bruner who had a big first half 
managed only one completion 
for no gain and was in- 
tercepted by Willie Mosley 
early in the fourth quarter. 

Bruner sent Fred Coleman 
flying down the sidelines but 
Mosley matched Coleman 
stride for stride. Mosley just 
barely had time to turn his 
head and see the ball when he 
had to dive full length to make 
a beautiful fingertip grab at 
the NSU 9. 

However Mosley's effort 
went for naught as Ballard 
was intercepted at NSU's 16 
yard line. 

"I was disappointed in our

having three passes picked 
off," said Williams, "I expect 
though that if we throw as 
much as we did then we are 
going to have some picked off. 
When they intercepted on our 
16 yard line our defense did an 
excellent job holding them. 
Northeast had to settle for a 34 
yard field goal." 

Northwestern had one last 
chance to tie the game. The 
Demons got the ball on the 
Northeast 46 yard line and 
started driving. But two play 
later Kirklin intercepted 
Ballard and raced 67 yards to 

"I thought that we had the 
opportunity to take the ball in 
on that last score," com- 
mented Williams, "But we 
had a breakdown in our two 
minute offense and that 
caused the interception." 

"I was really happy to see 
our running game do as well 
as it did tonight. Frank Haring 
and Sidney Thornton both did 
an excellent job running tbe 
ball," added Williams. 

Sidney Thornton was the 
leading ground gainer for the 
Demons with 94 yards and 
three touchdowns, 

"Overall I am pleased with 
the performance of the team. 
Even though we are playing 
twenty freshman, they all are 
doing very well. We did have 
some costly mistakes and 
turnovers, but I feel that in 
time we will correct many of 
those mistakes." 

"I would just like to say that 
all the fan support we got 
Saturday night helped the 
boys to play that much harder. 
The whole team really ap- 
preciates the fans support"

Is Northwestern junior 
safety Mike Maggio a daring 
football player? 

"Anybody that's 5-foot-9 and 
weighs 157 pounds has got to 
be daring to play college 
football," states NSU 
defensive coordinator. "I'd 
say Maggio is daring and

"Even Mike will tell you 
that he's got only average 
football ability," Knecht says. 
"I don't guess I ever had 
anyone make more mistakes 
than Mike did the first year I 
had him. I was tough on him 
and most kids would have 

But Maggio isn't the or- 
dinary person. 

A motocross racer in the off- 
season, Maggio thrives on 
excitement and thrills. "The 
thought of flying over a hill on 
a motorcycle or busting a ball 
carrier who outweighs me 60 
pounds really motivates me," 
Maggio says. 

Knecht picks up his story 
again by recalling, "Mike just 
kept coming back for more. 
He wanted to play football 
more than anything else. 
Mike's just a winner. He's got 
one speed on the field— all out. 
It just goes to show you that if 
a kid has some ability he'll 
make it if he keeps working." 



Actually, Maggio has better**^ ofi 
than average speed (4.6 or 4.11 downed 
in the 40). He earned a StarJet of 
ting job with the Demons as a- 
sophomore in 1974 and starred 
on the specialty teams as 

"When you're as small as 
Maggio, you've got to playSi^y 
good technique," Kned# rnton > 
adds. "You must stay low and™^ N< 
come up under a big maif ee 8 311 
when you tackle him. ijtofhiscl 
sounds easy but it takes a lot lffth S 311

Despite Maggio's lack ofatistical 
size, he's never had a serious^ 101-11 * 011 
injury in football or motocross^d juni 
racing. 'ton Roui 

"I better not catch Mike on a^hdown 
motorcycle until he finishes ^ds in a 
his football career at Nor- 188 * L01

informed of Maggio's off.revepoi

The CS Pigskin Prediction Panel is in a turmoil 
as Steve Colwell posted a perfect 15-0 week in his 
predictions. Never in the history of the panel has 
any member ever picked all of the games 
correctly. Sports editor Philip Timothy is thinking 
about firing Colwell and choosing someone he can 
count on. 

The other members of the panel had fine 
records but they were shadowed by Colwell's 
performance. Timothy and student picker John

"Litton will be bringing 
many of his best animals," 
said Sliman. "He will bring 
quite a few bulls that won't be 
ridden. And he's got some 
powerful horses in the 
bareback bronc riding event." 

In addition to bareback 
bronc and bull riding, novice 
and experienced Nor- 
thwestern students will be 
competing in such events as 
buddy barrel pickup, wild cow 
milking, tie-down calf roping, 
barrel racing, goat sacking, 
pole bending and calf 

Trophies for first, second 
and third place winners will be 
awarded to the team with the 
highest number of points. 

"Although many of the 
Northwestern students will be 
participating in rodeo events 
for the first time, there will be 
some students who have ex- 
cellent rodeo backgrounds and 
have been competing since 
they were youngsters," 
Sliman stated. "It will be an 
entertaining show for the 
entire family." 

David Levy and Jack 
Hughes, Northwestern 
students from Baton Rouge 
and members of the Louisiana 
Rodeo Association, will serve 
as rodeo clowns. Judges will 
be Dr. Jack Pace, a former 
rodeo contestant in Missouri 
and now a member of the NSU 
faculty, and Joe Scroggins of 
Natchitoches, who competed 
for some 10 years in the sport 
of rodeo.

Roscoe Lewis, Nor- 
thwestern 's sophomore 
linebacker, is wearing the 
shoes of the Demons' most 
important defensive player. 

"My job is to get to the 
football on every play," Lewis 
explains simply. "If a guy 
doesn't want to be where the 
action is, then he shouldn't be 
playing linebacker." 

Lewis, a 5-foot-10, 197- 
pounder out of Metairie-Bo 
nabel, is Northwestern's 
leading tackier after three 
games with 49— an average of 
just over 16 stops per game. 

While Lewis is just begin- 
ning to develop his potential as 
a college player, he also 
remembers a few months ago 
when he walked with a limp. 

Lewis had off-season knee 

"When I first got out of the 
hospital, I really had my 
doubts that I'd play this 
year," Lewis recalls. "But I 
talked with a couple of our 
players that have had knee 
operations like Sidney 
Thornton— they just told me to 
think positive." 

Lewis apparently did more 
than think positive. 

"He (Lewis) worked his tail 
off all spring to get his knee 
back in shape," according to 
NSU defensive coordinator 
Gene Knecht. "He had a job in 
New Orleans during the 
summer making good money, 
but he turned it down to come 
to summer school and work on 
getting his knee back in 

Lewis worked in the 
weightroom throughout the 
spring and summer while 
running daily. 

"It's a slow process getting 
a knee back in shape," Lewis 
says. "But I can truthfully say 
that all the work I did is worth 
it today." 

Actually, one of Lewis' 
strongest assets is his speed 
and agility. "Really, Roscoe 
has all the tools for a 
linebacker," Knecht says. 
"He's not real big, but he has 
good strength and he's lear- 
ning what the linebacking 
position is all about." 

In the win over Delta State, 
Lewis accounted for 19 taikles 
and was personally respon- 
sible for helping NSU's 
defense hold the Statesmen to 
just one first down in the 
second half. 

"We just got together in the 
dressing room at half time and 
decided we could shut'em 
down on defense... and we 
did," Lewis said. "Winning 
makes it all worthwhile. It's a 
tremendous feeling. We were 
so happy after the game all we 
could do was yell and slap 
everybody on the back." 

Lewis and the rest of NSU's 
defense will face a big test 
Saturday night against 
Northeast, a team averaging 

close to 30 points a game. 
As Lewis says, "The reason 

I enjoy playing linebacker 
most is because I like to hit."

The fever that wont break: 


Like most things, the cost of 
attending medical school 
has risen sharply 
over the last 

decade. To many , 
medical students 
that cost repre- 
sents a heavy 
burden, a financial 
problem that can 
affect your con- 

It needn't be 
that way. The 
Armed Forces 
Health Professions 
Scholarship Prograrr 
was originated to 
free you from those 
worries. Men and 
women who qual ify 
will have the costs of 
their medical educa- 
tion covered, and 
will also receive a 
substantial monthly 

The program offers 
more than tuition and 
salary; it offers you the 
opportunity to begin 
your practice under very 
favorable conditions. As a health care officer in 
the military branch of your choice, you'll find 
yourself with responsibilities fully in keeping with 
your training, and with the time and opportunity to 
observe a full spectrum of medical specialties. 

When you decide on the specialty you wish to 
pursue, you may find yourself taking those 
graduate medical studies at one of our many 
large and modern medical centers. If so, you can 
count on that training being second to none. 
Both the clinical and research work being done 
in them have made Army, Navy and Air Force 
hospitals a major new national medical resource. 

It's a long road, but the first step is simple. Just 
send in the coupon. The details we send you may 
make the whole way a little smoother.

He has been called "the first 
poet of technology," "the 
greatest living genius of in- 
dustrial-technical realization 
in building," and "an an- 
ticipator of the world to 
come." For most of his life he 
has simply been known as a 

Actually, Richard Buck- 
minster Fuller is a man who is 
far ahead of his time. He is an 
architect, philosopher, poet, 
and inventor. 

"Bucky" Fuller, as he likes 
to be called, regards himself 
as none of the above men- 
tioned. He explains his actions 
and ideals in the following 
statement made in the Jan. 10, 
1964 issue of Time. He said, 
"In 1927 1 made a bargain with 
myself that I would discover 
the principles operative in the 
universe and turn them over 
to my fellow men." 

This is just what he has 
done. Fuller has designed 
what is known as a 
"Dymaxion house." The 
house can be factory 
assembled, air delivered, and 
has its own utilities. 
In 1933, Fuller manufac- 
tured a "Dymaxion Car." It 
could carry up to 12 
passengers; make 180 degree 
turns within its length; travel 
about 120 miles per hour; and 
get an average of 28 miles per 
gallon of gas. It was equipped 
with all-around bumpers for 
maximum security. 

In 1943, Fuller redesigned 
his car. This one was to be 
powered by three separate, 
air-cooled engines. After 
starting, only one engine was 
required to maintain cruise 

speed. Margaret Fuller, co-founder 

This car would have of The Dial, 
averaged 40-50 miles per Fuller attended Harvard for 
gallon of gas and operated with a time but was expelled twice.

minimum pollution. All 
wheels were steerable, thus 
the car could move sideways 
like a crab. 

The car was never put into 
commercial production, 
possibly because the 
automobile industry is 
resistant to radical changes. 

Fuller's most famous and 
well-known invention is an 
architectural design called the 
"geodesic dome." There is no 
limiting the dimensions of this 
structure. According to Fuller 
the dome can be used as a 
"sky break" over entire cities, 
aiding in environmental 
control. The dome could be 
used even in such places as the 
Arctic Circle and the An- 

The geodesic dome was used 
over the U. S. exhibit at Expo 
67 in Montreal. The St. Louis 
Botanical Gardens are housed 
under one of Fuller's domes. 
In 1958, Union Tank Car Co. of 
Baton Rouge, built one. 

And his plans, inventions, 
and developments don't stop 
here. According to Fuller, 
"My ideas have undergone a 
process of emergence by 
emergency. When they are 
needed badly enough, they're 
accepted. So I just invent, then 
wait until man comes around 
to needing what I've in- 

Fuller has designs for a die- 
stamped, pre-fabricated 
bathroom, tetrahedral 
(pyramid shape with four 
sides and a base) floating 
cities, underwater geodesic- 
domed farms, and expendable 
paper domes. He would like to 
see a world inventory of the 
earth's resources compiled. 

All his developments are 
aimed at a radical solution to 
the world's problems by 
finding means to do more with 

Fuller, who has the 
reputation of being one of the 
most original thinkers of our 
time, was born in Milton, 
Mass. on July 12, 1895. He 
comes from a long line of New 
Englanders. One of his most 
famous ancestors was 

He served in the Navy during 
World War I. Since 1927, he 
has spent most of his time and 
effort trying to solve some of 





Since 1959, Fuller has 
served as research professor 
at Southern Illinois University 
at Carbondale. In 1968, he was 
named University professor, 
the second faculty member so 
distinguished in the univer- 
sity's history.

outstanding cadet in the junior 
calss. He was also the 
recipient of the Association of 
the United States Army 
Award for excellence in the 
field of military leadership. 

At Northwestern, the NSU 
senior is a member of the 
Devil's Disciples, an 
organization established last 
year to train university cadets 
in special military skills. 

Named as the executive 
officer of Northwestern's 
ROTC was Chris Sylvia. 

William Nipp Jr. was 
chosen to fill the position of the 
corps' sergeant major. 

Company commanders in 
the Northwestern ROTC are 
Rosemary MclntyTe and 
Roland Beasley. 

Miss Mclntyre became 
Northwestern's first coed 
during the summer to com- 
plete the six-week advanced 
ROTC summer camp at Ft. 
Riley, Kan. 


My rough guess-best 
estimate is the Christain 
churches spend around $87,000 
performing that strange thing 
called 'campus ministry' at 
NSU. And I would not be 
suprised if the real figure were 
more like $100,000. That goes 
to furnish staff, facilities, and 
program. Put your own pencil 
to paper to see what you come 
up with. 

Make sure you count the 
building operations of the 
Baptists, Methodists, Roman 
Catholics, and Church of 
Christ. The Episcopalians, 
Presbyterians.and Lutherans 
are not using campus ministry 
buildings at the present time. 
Make sure you count the three 
full-time campus workers, the 
four part-time campus 
workers, assorted secretaries, 
student v s, building 
monitors.and custodians. For 
the purposes of this com- 
putation don't count the local 
congregations which have 
their own programs for 
college-age students. Make a 
rough guess on the cost of 

The $100,000 figure becomes 
easily a $100,000 question . As 
long as we think of campus 
ministry as a little, back- 
woods, low-budget country 
show to take care of the 
students Mom and Dad sent 
off to the big university, no one 


Locoted next to Broadmoor Shopping Center 

will ask very many questions 
about it. But, when we 
discover that the dollar costs 
of campus ministry are 
beginning to reach six-figures, 
it may be high time to begin to 
discover again what we are 

What then, after all, is the 
church's agenda with the 
University? Historically, the 
church has always been a 
defender and promoter of 
quality higher education, 
because the church believes 
that persons involved in 
education stretch beyond 
themselves to discover 
greater worlds. The potential 
for sensitive and caring action 
is increased in persons who 
have encountered ideas and 
systems other than those in 
which they were raised. 
Perhaps one of the ways we 
campus minister types can 
serve this university is to call 
for student-f acuity- 
administration discussions on 
the quality of education at 
NSU. In that context we could 
develop our common hopes 
and aspirations, and join 
together in planning for the 

Another agenda item for the 
church with the university is 
its concern for those who are 
caught in and oppressed by 
systems. This area has many 
facets to it: racially in- 
tegrated classrooms and 
dormitories— segregated 
lifestyle; teachers who must 
constantly balance grading 
with the need to keep students 



enrolled; students who fee 
that they have no recoursf ,,eport ' ' 
against sloppy and inadequate ^ tate 
teaching administrators whr 4rsday 
have to balance urgen 1 * a ^ 
demands from faculty ant* Roc k 
students with priorities, anr turday .'

are all caught in and ap' 
pressed by our systems. Vice 
President Galloway and Dear 
Bosarge are open and mon 
than helpful to campui 
ministry people as we havt 
tried to work through in 
dividual cases. But perhaps 
going beyond that, one of the 
ways we campus ministei 
types can serve this universit; 
is to return again to thei 
systematic kinds of questioi 
which are mentioned above 

"Whoa," I hear you say,

Cheerleader lead Activities 

A walkathon, nostalgia, pep rallies, 
and a torch parade are all part of the 
cheerleaders 's plans for Tech Week, 
according to Craig Nugent, spirit 

Action began yesterday with a 
"Stomp-'em" Walkathon. Walkers 
started at the Coliseum and proceeded 
through various checkpoints at which 
they were given certain tasks to per- 
form. Some of the tasks were gathering 
river mud, cheerleading, bulldog 
imitations, and balloon bursting. The 
air was filled with laughter at the antics 
of the participants.

if they have them. The river front will 
be the scene of a pep rally at 6 p. m. 

A "Torch Parade" is planned for 
Thursday night at 6 p. m. All interested 
organizations are to have designated 
one person to carry a torch. The parade 
will leave the Coliseum and arrive at

signals the beginning of the pep rally.

sticks awarded at this time. A "Mid- 
night Pep Rally" will be held after the 
dance Thursday night. 

All students are urged to participate 
in these activities.

He also said that spot forms are 
available for student organizations and 
clubs that may want to announce their 
activities. The radio station will 
broadcast the day to day activities 
planned by the school spirit committee 
for the Tech Week. 

Despite apathy on campus, Palmer 
said "I think that students have shown 
strong backing for the station." "In 
fact," he continued "a student called 
recently to say 'I just want to call you 
because you sound great.'" He said 
some students often call to ask about 
the progress. 

To help increase participation of 
students, flash interviews are being 
aired at intervals. In a recent flash 
interview, a student was asked whether 
he felt the university has made a place 
for him, he said yes because he found a 
job on campus. 

Contestants for the beauty title of 
Northwestern State University's "Lady 
of the Bracelet" have been announced 
by Vickie Procell, pageant executive 
director. The 29 girls will compete in

In one of the poorest turn out of voters 
at Northwestern State University, 
students elected five senators and a 
secretary in the Student Body 
Association election on Oct. 8, ac- 
cording to unofficial results announced 
by Joani Rosenthal, co-chairman of the 
elections board. 

Peggy Delery, senior, education 
major, was elected SBA secretary 
unopposed. In a close contest, Wanda 
Ball and Paula Jones were elected 
senior senators over Connie Levo. 

Also elected were; Mary McCormick, 
junior senator; Debbie Hawkins and 
Lester J. Punch, sophomore senators. 
No graduate student filed for the race. 

The results have been validated by 
the elections board but are still to be 
approved by the SBA Senate. 

Run-off election for other class 
senators will take place on Oct. 15. 
Yvonne Fisher and Sam Wellborn will 

be in the race for junior senators while 
Sylvie Cardenas, Vanessa Davis, 
Joseph Evans and Robert Pittard will 
run for freshmen senators posts. All 
freshmen and juniors are urged to vote. 

On the voters turnout, Rosenthal said 
there were about 300 students who 
voted on the main campus while about 
100 turned out on the Shreveport 

Poor turnout was blamed on the usual 
apathy among students. However, 
elections board members agreed that 
there wasn't enough publicity for the 
candidates. In fact, it was an election 
held without platforms. Many students 
did not know whom they voted for since 
pictures of candidates did not appear in 
the Current Sauce. 

David Walker, a member of the board 
suggested that one of the election posts 
be moved to the cafeteria to attract 
more voters in future elections.

Buckminister Fuller 

Buckminster Fuller, a man of untold 
foresight, will be the next speaker for 
the Distinguished Lecture Series. He 
will speak Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 9:30 a. 
m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

"Bucky," as he likes to be called, is 
well-known in the fields of architecture 
and engineering because of his geodesic 
dome, a revolutionary idea in design 
and construction. 

Fuller's plans and developments 
center around his desire to make the 
world a better place to live in. He feels 
the solution to many of the world's 
pressing problems can be found by 
learning to do more with less. 

Fuller, regarded as a crackpot for 
years, has received world-wide 
recognition for his contributions and 
achievements in various fields of study. 
He has the reputation of being one of the 
most original thinkers in this half of the 
20th century. 

All classes scheduled for 9:30 will be 
dismissed for this lecture. 

The annual Cane River Tour of 
Historic Natchitoches was held this 
past weekend, with people from all 
parts of the United States visiting some 
of the oldest homes in the U. S. 

Included in the tour of Natchitoches 
was the Wells house, built before the 
invention of the cotton gin made cotton 
commercially profitable. The Wells 
House, owned by Mrs. Tom Wells, was 
exceptionally large and well built for its 
day. The fact that the upright posts are 
placed on a sill instead of being driven 
into the ground in the usual method of 
the day probably contributed to its 

Also on the tour was the Lemee House 
on Jefferson Street. The house was built 
by Soldini, an Italian contractor who 
came to Natchitoches in the early 
nineteenth century. The house is unique 
in that it has the only "cradle" roof in 
the United States. 

The Laureat House on Poete Street 
owned by Mrs. Ruby Smith Dun- 
ckleman was probably built about 1840. 
The house has been called a typical 
town house of the period with ac- 
commodating entrances for each room. 
The furnishings reflect the culture of 
Natchitoches with its French, Spanish 
and Colonial overtones. 

The Tante Huppe House on Jefferson 

owned by Mr. and Mrs. Robert 
DeBlieux played an important part in 
the lives of many Natchitoches 
families. The house was built in 1827 for 
Suzette Prudhomme, Tante Huppe. The 
house contains eighteen rooms, nine 
fireplaces, and eleven outside doors. 

Among the plantation homes on the 
tour was the Beau Fort Plantation in 
Bermuda, owned by Mrs. C. Vernon 
Cloutier. It is a one and one-half story 
cottage type building with three French 
door opening on to an 84-foot front 
gallery. It was built in 1830. 

Melrose Plantation in Melrose has 
seven buildings. The big house, built in 
1833, was begun by Louis Metoyer and 
completed by his son. The Yucca, built 
around 1798, is the original colonial 
residence. The African house, built in 
1800, was the slave fort and provision 
house. Other buildings on the plantation 
include the weaving house, the bindery, 
the writers cabin and Ghana. 

The Bayou Fort Museum is owned by 
Mrs. Mildred L. McCoy and was once 
the home of Kate Chopin, author of 
Bayou Folk, a book on this area. 

Cherokee plantation in Natchez is 
owned by Mr. and Mrs. William Nolan. 
It dates back before 1830 and is built of 
bousillage, mud mixed with moss and 
deer hair.

The Way I See It 

"Theater goers" 

In this part of the country, 
there are probably fewer 
"theater goers" than 
everywhere else. Maybe this 
fact is what leads to the comic 
scenes which take place. .in 
the audience. 

During the recent run of 
"Sticks and Bones," local 
theater patrons turned out to 
see the play. Dr. Black and 
Ray Schexnider have built a 
reputation for the NSU Drama 
Department which brings in 
the audiences whether the 
play is a comedy, a 
Shakespearian production or a 
psychological drama, such as 
"Sticks and Bones." 

The problem that seemed to 
arise in the audience of 
"Sticks and Bones" was that 

no one seemed to be very 
prepared for the show. Most 
NSU Theater patrons have 
grown accustomed to the 
plays Schexnider takes to the 
annual American College 
Threatre Festival, but a few 

This time there were people 
in the audience who couldn't 
understand why "Ozzie" and 
"Harriet" were behaving so 
oddly. One "theater goer" was 
heard to remark indignantly, 
"They must never have seen 
the real Ozzie and Harriet on 
T.V.! "A few of the audience 
even threatened to leave, 
though very few did. 

All the comments brought to 
mind the importance of 
publicity for any play. It is, 

finally, the publicity which 
tends to either fill or leave the 
audience empty. It seems like 
every possible effort had been 
made to at least partially 
prepare theater patrons for 
the play they came to see last 
week, but there were still 
some who somehow missed 

the boat. 


ut must be the way the mind 
grows accustomed to viewing 
scenes of life which causes 
modern plays to be misun- 
derstood and misinterpreted, 
but then perhaps if the mid 
were introduced more clearly 
to the playwright's meaning 
prior to the viewing of the 
play, the play might be un- 
derstood more easily. 

Mock elections and the real thing 

Mock elections don't count. 
It will be great if every 
student at this school takes 
enough interest to cast a ballot 
in the Mock Election being run 
by all the Student Body 
Associations in the state (See 
page 10). It will give all us an 
idea just what kind of in- 
fluence the "college vote" 

We here at Current Sauce 
have had a very hard time 
trying to deliver papers each 
week to our Shreveport 
Clinical campus. For a while, 
housing was helping us, but 
someone from the Housing 
Department wasn't needed at 
Clinical every week, hence 
there were some weeks when 

could have over the results of 
an election— if we were to put 
our combined vote to use. 

But, Mock Elections don't 
count. They are just for our 
own benefit. What really 
counts is the real thing, the 
election Nov. 1. Now is the 
times to get absentee ballots if 
you won't be able to go to the 

Special thanks 

Clinical did not receive the 

This situation was not 
Housing's fault — we were 
glad that they helped us when 
they could. 

With this issue of Current 
Sauce, however, the Office of 
External Affairs will be

registered. If you need in- 
formation, call the local 
registrar of voters office and 
he can tell you how to obtain 
the ballot for your home area. 

And if you are registered in

to mark you calendar so that 
you will remember to vote. 

helping us by distributing 
Current Sauce on the 
Shreveport campus. We really 
appreciate this service and we 
hope that Clinical will be 
pleased to know that they

this situation will work out 
favorably for the paper and 
the students at Clinical. 

Odds and Ends 

I stand corrected. Last week 
the grapevine passed on some • 
information concerning a 
contest of Mr. Cameron of the 
English Department. It seems 
he isn't running a Robert 
Redford look-alike contest at 
all. He has been in contact 
with an agent from Hollywood 
about replacing Hal Holbrook 
as Abraham Lincoln in the 
NBC specials. Sorry for the 
mistake, Mr. Cameron. 

We've cancelled the October 
21 issue of Current Sauce so 
that the staff can join in the 
State Fair activities. Look for 
next issue Oct. 28. And from

SBA at a glamour ^ 

Happiness is (among other 
things) the absence of 
loneliness. So — what is 
loneliness? Well - here on the 
campus it is many things: an 
empty mailbox, a weekend in 
the dorm, reading while you 
eat, walking along to town, 
walking across the crowded 
campus, sitting in the Student 
Union with friends who don't 
know your thoughts, and 
maybe even the intimate part 
of a date! 

It seems that loneliness is 
just part of the human con- 
dition, and an especially 
prevalent part of campus life. 
Loneliness may not be con- 
sidered by many people to be a 
"problem," but I would insist 
that it is when loneliness 
becomes so painful that it 
drives us to do things that are 
self-defeating. It may be the 
prime mover behind many 
such actions as: going home 
on weekends, when we really 
need to stay on campus and 
cope with life as a new 
fledgling from the nest of 
home; becoming intimate too 
quickly in new relationships 
which haven't existed long 
enough to contain genuine 
affection; avoiding places 
such as the library, lab, or 
practice room, where one is 
likely to work alone, and many 
other private ways of avoiding 

But — there are creative 
ways of dealing with 
loneliness. Some years ago an 
elderly woman died alone in a 
flat in London. In her diary 
was found the same notation 
for every day of the past year: 
"No one came." Another 
elderly lady reading a 
newspaper account of the 

diary commented in a letter to 
the editor, "I sometimes write 
the same notation in my diary, 
but with one difference. I say, 
'No one came — thank 

One woman was ex- 
periencing "loneliness," the 
other, "solitude." The 
theologian Paul Tillich says, 
"The word loneliness ex- 
presses the pain of being 
alone, the word solitude ex- 
presses the glory of being 

Loneliness is gnawing under 
the burden of aloneness. It is 
self-pity and pain and 
resentment crying out against 
a cold, cruel world, protesting 
that no one really un- 
derstands. It is pathos and 
estrangement and the 
inability to lay hold of 
resources to help. 

Solitude is affirming the 
freedom and the greatness of 
aloneness. It is a drawing 
apart into the self to reflect on 
experiences. In is creative 
meditation. From this musing 
center, the self looks out at the 
world and at last can respond 
without self -defeat! 

Loneliness can be recycled 
into solitude. Here are some 
ways, but be careful because 
some of these can create new 

problems of a much higher 

(1) Prayer — com- 
municating with an Other 
(however you may con- 
ceptualize Him, Her, or It.) 

(2) Meditation — con- 
templating the world of things 
and ideas, Universe, space 
and time, as when you stand 
along gazing into one of our 
many lakes and the sky and 
consider your insignificance 
in the presence of the 
mysterious universe. 

(3) Intense busyness — 
filling the air with music 
(KNWD maybe?) the room 
with people, your hands with 

(4) Facing yourself — trying 
to analyze why you are feeling 
lonely, facing the situation 
outside and inside yourself 
that is creating these feelings. 

(5) Doing something you 
know is wrong just to ease 
loneliness and make life seem 
exciting and dangerous — 
knocking out street lights or 
stealing hubcaps or ripping off 
tape players. (6) Being with a 
trusted friend — enjoying the 
exclusive company of a friend 
who cares and with whom you 
can share your feelings of 

Consider yourself housed in 
a separate body. No one else 
can feel precisely what you 
feel or think exactly as you 
think. Your life is uniqueg 
your memories are yours; and 
these facts create an essential 
aloneness of yourself that no 
other person can ever com- 
pletely share. We are made 
this way. We are destined, like 
the islands and the stars, to 
be, in the final summing up, 

The Senate of Northwestern 
State University met on Oct. 6, 
1975 in the SBA Conference 
Room. The meeting was 
called to order at 6:45 p. m. by 
Martin Fontenot. Joani 
Rosenthal was absent. 

Representatives from the 
Shreveport Warrington 
Campus of Northwestern 
State University presented a 
petition to the SBA. The 
reason for this petition is 
because most of the students 
are unable to attend concerts, 
guest lecturers, movies, 
plays, and athletics due to the 
fact that their class and 
clinical schedules make it 
virtually impossible. They 
want to set up their own SBA 
and use their fees to bring 
entertainment to their own 
campus. Robert Johnson 
stated that since the new 
constitution is being drawn up 
this can be added to it.

The Reader's Comment on State Fair elections 

cron Chi 
i threw 1 
Pi Kappa 
dans for T 

Dear Editor: 

lam writing in regard to the 
State Fair Court elections 
which were held last Wed- 
nesday. It is my un- 
derstanding that elections are 
to follow a certain election 
code as specified by the SBA 
Constitution. If this is true, 
then something definitely 
went wrong. 

Why was one of the 
nominees allowed to serve as 
Commissioner of the Elec- 
tion? Is the SBA Constitution 
so outdated as to suggest that 
no one has to follow the 
guidelines it establishes? 

If the persons working the 
election had no idea as to the 
rules and regulations con- 
cerning the election, she must 
be very stupid. Common sense 
tells you that if you're up for 
election, you don't count the 

Article V, Section 4, of the 
SBA Constitution reads as 
follows: "... Polls shall be 
open from 8 a. m. until 7 p. m. 
on the day of the election. 

Commissioners shall be 
named by the Election Board; 
no Commissioner may be a 
candidate for any office to be 
elected in that election..." 

A big mistake was made 
when this girl was allowed to 
work the election. This 
oversight of the election code 
made the entire election 
unfair to the other candidates. 
Isn't it only fair to let all the 
candidates count the votes, 
and not just one of them? 

Shelly LaFleur 

( Editor's Note: Read on!) 

To the Editor, 

I am writing concerning the 
State Fair elections. As Co- 
chairman of the Elections 
Board, I worked at the polls 
from 7:30 a. m. to 8 p. m., and 
I know exactly how the 
elections were handled and 
who worked at the polls. 

Because of lack of interest 
and support, some of the 
candidates were allowed to 
man the polls. There was no 

campaigning, only an interest 
to help the SBA, of which they 
were all a part 

If anyone felt this was an 
injustice, it is their con- 
stitutional right to file a 
protest, as prescribed by the 
elections code, but no one did. 

The only "help" I received 
was at the Senate meeting, w- 
hen the black senators decided 
to disapprove the election 
results. But where were these 
people when they were needed 
to work at the polls? Most of 
them were not to be found. 

About the fact that one 
candidate was allowed to help 
count votes. She is also Co- 
chairman of the Elections 
Board, and she has every right 
to count votes. She didn't have 
a free hand to count by herself 
and she had no advantage 
over the other candidates. 
Also, no candidate was denied 
access to the tabulation of 

I feel that the elections were 
handled fairly and the winners 
are as good as ever. As far as I 
am concerned, if anyone 
wants to bitch, let them come 
work at the elections, then if 
they are dissatisfied, they 
have the right to disapprove. 

Jay Garcia 
Cc-Cnairman, Elections Board 

(Editor's Note: It's silly to put 
the editor of a two-bit college 
newspaper in a position to 
judge sides of questions like

Sociology club lists goals 

by Mark Smith 

"The Sociology Club is more 
than a social club, we also 
concentrate on the academic 
and professional aspects," 
according to Roland N. Pip- 
pin, newly elected advisor of 
the NSU Sociology Club. 

Pippin said that there has 
been a great deal of misun- 
derstanding about the club. He 
said students hear about club 
parties but do not know about 
the programs in which it is 
involved. Because of this, he 
added, the club has become 
known as a social organization 
only. Even though the social 
aspect certainly cannot be 
ignored, he said, the purpose 
of the club is "to direct the 
sociology major toward 
scholarly research and 
generation of theory." 

The new advisor attributed 
the misunderstandings about 
the club to a lack of publicity 
of the club's programs. He 
added this was mostly the 
fault of the club. 

An important objective of 
the organization is to give 
attention to the Sociology and 
Social Work Department and 
inform people of the different 
aspects of sociology. Pippin 
Said many people do not un- 
derstand what sociology 
actually is. He said many 
people think that if a person is 

a sociologist, he is a social 
worker, but sociologists serve 
in many different positions, 
such as management, 
marketing, and government 
consultation. NSU's depart- 
ment of Sociology and Social 
Work offers four programs: 
social work, rehabilitation, 
law enforcement, and 

In discussing plans for the 
coming year, Pippin said the 
club intends to participate in 
the Retired Senior Volunteer 
Program fRSVP). in this 
project, which Pippin said 
interests mostly social work 
and rehabilitation majors, 
students work with the elderly 
in nursing homes and observe 
the operation of the homes. 

SOCIOLOGY SPONSOR— Mark Smith, Current 
Sauce reporter, talks with Roland Pippin, the new 
sponsor of the Sociology Club. Pippin cleared up 
some misconceptions that students have about the 

Programs of interest to law 
enforcement and sociology 

majors are also planned, he 

Another project which the 
organization plans is the 
publication of "Tune In," a 
book published annually by 
the club. According to Pippin, 
the book contains manuscripts 
submitted by sociology 
students, news about events in 
the sociology department, and 
accomplishments of NSU 
sociology graduates. The 
books are mailed to Nor- 
thwestern sociology alumni. 
He said this publication is 
very important because it 
gives the student an op- 
portunity to express himself, 
"We view 'Tune In' as a 
professional outlet for the 
student," he remarked. 

Pippin said he is also 
working to establish a chapter 
of Alpha Kappa Delta, a 
national society for 
sociologists, at NSU. The 
university must meet a few 
more requirements before the 
chapter can be set up. 

In addition to the programs 
devised solely for the 
Sociology Club members, 
Pippin hopes to arrange some 
programs to which all 
students will be invited.

The upcoiriing Tech-NSU 
game and the weekend 
surrounding it means a lot of 
things to a lot of people. To 
some it means the opportunity 
to get drunk and stay that way 
indefinitely. To others, it's a 
trip to Shreveport to do 
something besides going to the 
game or the fair. To some it's 
a week of easy classes, 
because no teacher expects 
you to keep your mind on 
anything but TECH 
WEEKEND. But to others, it's

To a girl, Tech weekend 
actually begins early in 
September. By the second 
week of the semester, a girl is 
looking for the best looking 
guy on campus to take her to 
the game. He must meet 
certain requirements: 1) he 
must be the best looking man 
on campus; 2) He must have a 
"set of wheels" to out-style 
any on the road, preferable a 
76 model; and 3) he must be 

By the end of September, if 
a girl doesn't have a date, her 
requirements are not quite as 
rigid. But this time she's 
looking for a reasonable good 
looking male with a car. One 
week before Tech Weekend, 
she will take any man with a 
bicycle or who knows how to 
get a ride in a pickup truck. 

The next step in a girls plans 
for the weekend (after she has 
a date) is to find the best 
looking clothes possible. This 
outfit may consist of bits and 
pieces of other girls' war- 
drobes, but it doesn't matter.

( EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to 
the rising costs of collegiate 
athletics, many schools are 
being forced to drastically 
alter their programs. In this 
story, former Current Sauce 
staff member Dan McDonald 
summarizes what caused the 
current crisis and what can be 
done to bring it to a stop.) 
by Dan McDonald 
Of all the American in- 
stitutions threatened by in- 
flation and recession, none is 
more all-American than in- 
tercollegiate athletics. Some 
90 percent of all U. S. college 
athletic departments are 
losing money, and as Frank 
Deford wrote in Sports 
Illustrated, "Every Indication 
is that it will get worse before 
it gets lots worse." 

An omen of things to come 
was reported by Kansas State 
University recently. Long a 
member of the Big Eight, and 
for years one of the nation's 
leading basketball powers, 
Kansas State revealed that as 
of June 30 it had accumulated 
a $365,000 deficit in its men's 
athletic programs. 

To make ends meet, the 
athletic department was 
forced to borrow $204,000 from 
anticipated football revenue, 
and it ordered deep cuts in all 
sports budgets except 
basketball's. Golf, tennis, 
gymnastics and wrestling 
were left with no money at all 
and 1975-76 schedules were 

The economic pressures on 
intercollegiate athletics have 
reached such intensity that 
the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association (NCAA) 
held a special convention two 
months ago. Meeting in 
Chicago in August, the 
organization's members acted 
with unusual speed to adopt 
rules reducing the number of 
athletic scholarships and 
coaches, limiting the size of 
traveling squads and reducing 
contact with recruiting 

However, the regulation 
limiting the size of squads was 
overruled by a federal judge. 
Then that judgment was 
overruled and squads are still 

NCAA Executive Director 
Walter Byers had said he 
believed that the new rules 
will save at least $15 million 
for Division I and II schools — 

those with "big-time" and 
medium-sized varsity 
programs - over the next year. 
Major football schools may 
save up to $200,000 each. 
Another special session on 
finances will be held before 
the NCAA's regular con- 
vention meets in January in 
St. Louis. 

Varsity sports are more 
than just another figure in the 
sad procession of healthy 
enterprises brought low by 
America's economic woes. 
They have been persistently 
plagued by ethical problems, 
some of which can be traced 
back half a century or more. 

In 1929 a report by the 
Carnegie Foundation for the 
Advancement of Teaching 
sent shock waves across the 
country with its indictment of 
rampant corruption and 
commercialism in college 
sport. Many of its findings still 
apply today. 

The fact is that the varsity 
sports "machine" is bigger

Northwestern State

defense for 86 yards on 16 

Prior to 1975 Haring's best 
gain to fame was his duties as !' 
a member of Northwestern's 
specialty teams. Haring's 3JE 
headhunter responsibilities on 
what became known as 
"suicide squads" were ex- 
citing to watch— but they gave 
Frank headaches. 

"There's a lot of hitting that 
goes on," Frank says, "and all 
the hitting is full speed on the 
suicide squads. I busted a lot 
of heads during my two years 
on the specialty teams, but I 
got my bell rang a few times 

ing every down this year and it 
makes all the difference in the 
world. I mean I really feel like 
I'm contributing." 

Haring is averaging 4.0 
yards per carry with 182 yards 
on 45 attempts. He also had an 

eight yard touchdown run in 
the 14-12 come-from-behind 
win over Delta State. 

Besides his running ex- 
ploits, Haring has been 
valuable to the Demons' of- 
fense as a pass receiver. He's 
caught nine passes for 48 

"Frank has really come on 
for us the last couple of 
games," NSU Head Football 
Coach A. L. Williams said. 
"He (Haring) had a good 
second half against Delta 

State and he ran hard against

just about every day to run 
extra sprints to improve his

"That's dedication and that's 
what we've got to have on this 

Williams continued, "Frank 
has a 100 percent better at- 
titude now than he did last 
year— and it's helped make 
him a better football player."

harassment of prospective 
athletes by coaches and 
recruiters. But its six-man 
investigative squad, which 
has to rely mainly on in- 
formants, is seen as 
inadequate for policing the 
NCAA's 703 member schools. 

Darrell Royal, University of 
Texas athletic director and 
head of the American Football 
Coaches Association, has 
called for the use of he

The most important and far- 
reaching development on the 
varsity athletic scene today, 
many feel, is the women's 
movement to achieve equal 
treatment with men in in- 
tercollegiate sports. There is 
little doubt that women's 
athletics have been woefully 
underfinanced at most 
colleges and universities:

According to one estimate 
quoted in a report to the 
American Council on 
Education, the annual 
national budget for in- 
tercollegiate athletics is $300 
million, or roughly one per- 
cent of the $30 billion spent 
yearly on higher education in 
this country. 

The financial crisis facing 
coaches and athletic directors 
has intensified the need to win 
at any cost. A winning team 
means large gate receipts, 
bowl and tournament bids, 
and lucrative television ap- 
pearances. Where football or 
basketball is expected to 
provide most of the revenue 
for all other sports, it also 
means being able to afford 
golf or wrestling. 

The long-standing ethical 
problems of recruiting and 
subsidizing athletes have 
grown larger. In 1929 the 
Carnegie report called this 
"the deepest shadow that 
darkens American college and

Hhwestern football pep 

In Saturday night's loss to 
Nicholls State the per- 
formances of Sidney Thorn- 
ton, Stuart Wright and Mike 
Maggio were all over- 

It started out well for the 
Demons. They completely 
man-handled the Colonels in 
the first 30 minutes. The 
Demons using the hard run- 
ning of Thornton rammed the 
ball down the field on four 
sustained drives. Two of those 
drives were good enough for 
Demon scores. 

The first was a 44-yard field 
goal by Dennis Pendergraft. 

The field goal was the first 
points a Demon team has 
scored against Nicholls State. 
In two previous meetings the 
Colonels had taken 3-0 and 7-0 
wins from the Demons. 

Pendergraft had just missed 
from 42 yards out when the 
ball angled off to the right. But 
the freshman was not through. 
With three seconds left in the 
first half he tried from 59 
yards out. The ball fell short, 
but time had ran out and the 
Demons were leading 10-0. 

The Demons second scoring 
drive was started midway 
through the second quarter.

L. Williams, NSU's new 
football coach, had just 
ered a brief but in- 
tional speech to the 
al hundred students, 
irleaders and band 
ounding the Demons' 
ice field. 

want to sincerely thank 
all for your support of our 
team," Williams told 
^rowd. "We're young and

team... but with the

we'll make it to the top

ident Wayne McCullen. 

positive and his en- 
asm just rubs off on 

everybody he meets." 

Williams, who gained 
national attention for 
developing quarterbacks like 
Joe Ferguson of the Buffalo 
Bills at Shreveport's 
Woodlawn High School, says 
modestly that the people that 
surround him make it all 


...generates excitement 


"Wherever I go, whether it's 
on campus, across town or 
meeting alumni in Shreveport 
or somewhere, people come 
up to me and offer their 
support," says Williams. "I 
can't get over how nice 
everyone has been... I mean if 
they're this nice while we're 
building our program, then I 
can't imagine what it'll be like 
when we're on top." 

Williams and his youthful 
Demons got their first taste of 
victory in a 14-12 come-from- 
behind win over Delta State 
University— a team favored 
as much as 17 points by some 

"It's just a wonderful 
feeling," Williams said after 
the game. "Our kids deserved 
to win this one. They've 
worked hard and I think this 
win will give them confidence 
in future games." 

"All I can say is that if we 
continue to get support, we're 
going to have the type of 
football program here that our 
fans will be proud of," 
Williams said. 

Stuart Wright replacing Butch 
Ballard at quarterback came 
in and promptly threw a 
beautiful 37-yard bomb to 
wide receiver Wyamond 
Waters. However Wright was 
injured and Ballard came in 
and led the Demons on down to 
the Nicholls State six-yard 

With fourth down at the 
Nicholls six yard line Ballard 
went back to pass. All his 
receivers were covered, the 
junior from Bogalusa 
scrambled the six yards into 
the end zone giving the 
Demons six big points. Pen- 
dergraft added the PAT and 
NSU led 10-7. 

The defense for the Demons 
during the first half was 
something else. Mike Maggio 
the Demons safety personally 
stalled Colonels drives twice. 
Once on a pass interception 
that he returned 15 yards and 
the second time on a fumble 

Northwestern completely 
ruled the first half. The of- 
fense line blew big holes for 
Sidney Thornton who bullied 
his way for 116 yards in the 
first half to lead all rushers. 
The defense except for one 
broken play kept the Nicholls 
State offense pretty much in 

In the second half, however, 
Northwestern just completely 
collapsed. The Colonels took 
advantage of all that the 
Demons were giving. Nicholls 
State drove 66-yards in eight 
plays to score the go ahead 
touchdown. Ted Bergeron hit 
Gerald Butler in the end zone 
for Nicholls score. The 
Colonels would not trail again. 

The second Nicholls score 
followed a Wright punt. 
Fullback Rickey Lovell, who 
gained 102 yards rushing, 
busted through for 60 yards 
down to the Demons six to set 
up the TP. Steve Stropolo took 

the pitch and waltzed in from 
four yards out completely 

The Colonels added a couple 
more points late in the third 
quarter. Waters took a punt on 
the one yard line instead of 
letting the ball roll into the end 
zone and then took off running. 
A trio of Nicholls defenders 
trapped him in the end zone 
for a safety and the end to all 
scoring for both sides. 

The Demons only picked up 
three first downs in the second 
half. And those first downs 
came with seven minutes left 
in the game when it was 
clearly out of reach. 

Northwestern quarterbacks 
did not have that good of a 
night as together Ballard and 
Wright were six of 26 at- 
tempted passes and had two 
intercepted. But the quar- 
terbacks can't hold the entire 
blame, as Demon receivers 
dropped numerous passes that 
were in their hands. 

Ballard finished up the night 
completing only three of 15 
passes for three yards. He ran 
eight times for 16 yards and a 
touchdown. Wright completed 
only three of ten passes and 
had two intercepted for a total 
of 79 yards. 

But Wright did come 
through for the Demons in the 
punting department. The 
junior from Natchitoches 
punted six times for a 42.7 
yard average. Several times 
Wright was forced to punt 
from his own endzone in the 
second half and responded 
with high booming kicks that 
offered little chance of run 

But the best individual 
performance was Thorntons 
135 yards in 25 rushes. The 
Bull who ran for three touch- 
downs last weekend against 
Northeast in a losing cause 
lead the game's rushers with 
his 135 yards.

Talking about his two baby 
bulls makes Peace excited. 
"If they both keep the proper 
attitude and continue to push 
themselves, they'll be as good 
as any linemen we've had 
come through here," Peace 

Hernandez may have the 
edge over Perot at this point, 
possibly because Hernandez 
faced Class AAAA com- 
petition during his high school 
career. Hernandez helped 
Tara to the state cham- 
pionship while Perot was 
instrumental in St. Mary's 
drive to the Class A 

"Ed has more explosiveness 
and quickness than Petey 
right now," Peace says, "but 
Petey has more agility. That 
may not make sense but it's 
true. When Petey learns to get 
off the ball better, he's going 
to be right with Ed— and 
there's not that much dif- 
ference between the tWo right 

Peace admits that he uses 
the two heavyweights against 
each other to make them work 
harder. "Yea, I tell one of 
them that the other one is 
doing better and it makes the 
other one work harder," the 

NSU coach said. "It's a 
matter of pride and I like 

During the spring Peace and 
the other NSU coaches plan to 
get Hernandez and Perot in a 
weight training program. 

NOT A RUNT— Ed Hernandez, who sees plenty of 
action on fourth and short yardage, will be back in 
action this Saturday night. Hernandez and Petey 
Perot will be seeing plenty of action, according to 
Demon coaches.

In NSU's 23-10 loss 

Coaches not pleased 

A. L. Williams and staff 
were just shaking their heads 
Sunday as they viewed the 
film of Northwestern State 
University's 23-10 loss to 
Nicholls State Saturday night 
at Thibodaux. 

"We played as poorly as we 
could play in the second half," 
Williams said. "I just can't 
explain it ... the concentration 
wasn't there." 

Although Northwestern led 
the unbeaten and favored 
Colonels 10-7 at halftime, 
Williams wasn't pleased with 
his team's first half per- 

"I guess it was the best we 
had played in the first half this 
season," Williams said, "but 
we had a chance to put the 
game away and we didn't. We 
were dropping passes and 
missing receivers all night." 

Williams said his Demons 
obviously had to correct a lot 
of mistakes this week in 
preparation for this Saturday 
night's State Fair Stadium 
clash with unbeaten Louisiana 


Actually, Northwestern 
fullback Sidney Thornton had 
his best statistical rushing 
performance of the season. 
Thornton crashed his way for 
135 yards on 25 carries, but he 
got 126 of those yards in the 
first half. 

Northwestern's coaches 
were more than delighted over 
the kicking performances of 
freshman Dennis Pendergraft 
of Chalmette and junior Stuart 
Wright of Natchitoches. 

Pendergraft booted the 
second longest field goal in 
Northwestern history — a 44- 
yarder that had about 15 yards 
to spare. He was just short on 
a 58-yarder on the last play 
before halftime. 

Wright punted the ball six 
times for a 42.7 average. 

Defensively, linebackers 
Roscoe Lewis and George 
Barefield were lauded for 
their hitting.

Demons' volleyball team 
gained some valuable 
experience over the 
weekend while par-

Coach Charlotte Creed's 
Demons won one of four 
matches in the stiff

respectable 14-6 overall 

In the opening match of 
the tournament, which 
was played in Melcher 
Gym on the UH Campus, 
Texas-Arlington battled 
the Demons down to the 
wire before winning 15-10, 

Northwestern then 
fought back to rout Texas 
A&I University 14-16, 15-}, 
15-6, in split games. 

Sam Houston, one of the 
top teams in the tourney, 
turned back Northwestern 
15-3, 15-4. The Demons 
gave the University of 
Texas all it could handle in 
their final match, but the 
Lady Longhorns prevailed 
15-3, 12-15, 15-11. 

Northwestern and LSU 
were the only teams 
represented in the

A record crowd of more than 
1,300 persons attended 
Thursday night's sixth annual 
Northwestern State 
Univeristy Agriculture Club 
Rodeo held at the Nat- 
chitoches Parish Fairgrounds 

Joseph Sliman of Eunice, 
NSU student who coordinated 
this year's collegiate show, 
said attendance at the rodeo 
was also one of the largest in 
the history of the arena. 

"We were really surprised 
at the turnout," said Sliman. 
"We had excellent weather, 
which was unlike the cold and 
rain we had to work with last 
year. I think the people of this 
area were hungry for a good 
rodeo, and our college 
students really gave them a 
good show. People have told 
us that it was the best rodeo 
ever held in the parish." 

The Northwestern Ag Club 
Rodeo, produced by A.L. 
Litton of Pelican, was so 
successful that Ag Club of- 

ficials are now considering the 
possibility of staging another 
show in the spring, provided a 
rodeo can be held in the spring 
at a time when there are no 

"The people who run the 
Natchitoches Parish Fair are 
also talking with the Ag Club 
about the possibility of putting 
on a two or three-day show 
during the parish fair," 
Sliman added. "That's in the 
future, but it is something we 
are exploring." 

More than 170 Northwestern 
students entered the collegiate 
rodeo, which featured com- 
petition for men and women in 
nine events. 

Brad Walston of Minden 
won the bareback bronc 
riding, while Bill Townsend of 
Shreveport and Guy Sanders 
of Minden placed second and 
third, respectively, in the 

Peggy Keiffer of Mon- 
tgomery took first place in 
calf roping. Second place went 

to Leo Griffin. 

In girl's barrel racing, Gail 
Thompson of Bossier City was 
the winner. Sybill Quick of 
Ashland was second, and third 
was Teryn Tate of Slaughter. 

First place in bull riding 
went to Sanders. Ronnie 
Parault of Shreveport was 
second and Joe Sers of Nat- 
chitoches was third. 

The buddy barrel pickup 
event was won by the team of 
Gail Thompson and Heidi 
Hughett, coeds from 
Shreveport. Debbie Winslett 
of Lake Charles and Miss Tate 
were members of the second 
place team. Third went to 
Sliman and Griffin.

...DU chapter banquet set 

The local Ducks Unlimited banquet 
has been set for Oct. 23. Roy Gentry, 
Jaycee Chairman for the Ducks 
Unlimited program, said the banquet 
will be held in the Jaycee Building at 
the Natchitoches Parish Fairgrounds 
beginning with a social hour at 6 p. m. 
The banquet will be held at 7 o'clock. 

This will be the fifth consecutive year 
that the Jaycees has been sponsoring 
the program. Members of the Jaycees 
have raised nearly $25,000 for Ducks 
Unlimited in four years and have in- 
creased membership in the local Ducks 
Unlimited chapter from less than 100 to 
more than 250. 

The banquet features a gumbo din- 
ner, door prizes, an auction and a 

Ducks Unlimited color film. Gentry 
said proceeds from the auction, dinner 
and memberships reached 10,000 last 
year, and a goal of $12,000 for Ducks 
Unlimited has been established 

Four Ducks Unlimited prints and the 
DU commemorative shotgun will be 
only some of the items that will be put 
up for auction. Motorcycles, guns, 
hunting trips and other prizes will also 
be given away or auctioned during the 

Lane Brigham, former Shreveport 
radio personality and now an ad- 
vertising official in Shreveport, will 
serve as auctioneer. State regional and 
national Ducks Unlimited officials will 
also participate in the program. 

Gentry said the DU banquets and 
memberships provided virtually all of 
the $5 million contributed to the 
national organization last year. 

For $15, sportsmen may purchase a 
Ducks Unlimited membership and 
banquet ticket. Memberships alone are 
$10. Greenwing memberships for 
youngsters under 16 are only $5, and 
children may attend the banquet with 
their fathers for $1 extra. 

"The Jaycees have raised more 
money each year for Ducks 
Unlimited," he said, "and we hope to 
exceed's last year's proceeds by at 
least 20 percent. 

An estimated 250 sportsmen are 
expected to attend the meeting. 

BEGINNING MILKING?— This unusual sight 
was quite common at last Thursday's sixth annual 
Ag Club Rodeo. While several contestants im- 
moblized the beast in question, the other tried to 
milk it. The Rodeo drew over 1300 people.

This week the CS Pigskin Prediction Panel has 
another first. It was brought to the attention of 
the panel that there exist an intense rivalry 
between Bud Oberle of Arkansas and Rick Quary 
of Texas. Both as baseball players. Since 


Arkansas tackles Texas this week the two were 
allowed to show their loyalty in the Panel. 

The rivalry which has been know at time to 
break into fist-to-cuffs was no exception as both 
Timothy and Colwell were required to separate 
the two time and again. Both Quary and Oberle 
threw more mud on each other's school, football 
team, Coaches, and states than most politicans 
during election time.

the smallest player on Nor- 
thwestern State University's 
squad at 157 pounds, leads the 
Demons in two statistical 
departments after five games. 

Maggio. a product of Vinton, 
intercepted a pass and 
recovered a fumble in the first 
quarter against Nicholls State 
Saturday night. He now has 
two fumble recoveries and a 
pair of pass interceptions this 

Averaging 19 yards per pass 
interception, Maggio has a 
slight advantage over 
teammate George Barefield, a 
linebacker with two in- 
terceptions and an average of 
nine yards per theft. 

Junior fullback Sidney- 
Thornton of Baton Rouge- 
Capitol and freshman wide 
receiver Wyamond Waters 
also pace Northwestern in two 
individual departments 

Thornton, who rushed for 
135 yards on 25 carries in the 
23-10 loss to unbeaten 
Nichollas State, has rambled 
for 391 yards on 93 attempts 
for a 4.2 average per carry 
this season. He's averaging 
78.2 yards per game. 

Thorton's 18 points also 
gives him the scoring lead. 

Waters, a 6-foot-l, 175-pound 
speedster out of Dallas, Tex., 
is averaging 20.3 yards per 
kickoff return and 5.6 yards 
per punt return. 

Quarterback Butch Ballard 
has completed 49 of 92 passes 
for 515 yards and three touch- 
downs while teammate Stuart 
Wright has connected on 11 of 
24 throws for 212 yards. 

Another freshman wide 
receiver. Mike Almond of 
Bossier City, continues to be 
NSU's top pass receiver. He's 
caught 14 passes for 212 yards 
and two touchdowns. Thornton 
is second with 12 catches for 
100 yards. 

Waters has the best average 
per reception at 26.0 on eight 

Sophomore linebacker 
Roscoe Lewis, a 5-foot-10. 197- 
pound from Mteairie- 
Bonnabel, has widened his 
margin as the Demons' No. 1 
tackier. Lewis now has 75 
tackles, averaging 15 tackles 

per game. 

This week Northwestern 
will challenge the third un- 
defeated team on its schedule 
and the second in a row. 
Louisiana Tech's Bulldogs will 
carry a 4-0 record into 
Saturday night 's annual State 
Fair Game against the 
Demons in Shreveport's State 
Fair Stadium. 

Tickets for the Nor- 
thwestern-Tech game will be 
available all week at various 
locations throughout 
Shreveport. the Tech Athletic

the graduation of ace 
bander Dennis Choate, 
leed strong efforts from 
iturning veterans. The 
ins who were in a 
lding season did not do as 
as many people thought

bat we lacked the sticks 
(inch across those one or 
runs that we need to win

g coached by former 
ion shortstop and now a 
iber of the St. Louis 
linals Bobby Hrapman. 
in starred for the 

Arkansas Travellers which is 
a farm team for the Cardinals 
at shortstop. 

"Bobby has been working 
with the team all fall and did a 
real fine job with them," said 

Many of the team members 
agree that Hrapman have 
helped them a great deal in 
fall workouts. 

"Coach Hrapman has 
helped me gain my confidence 
back," said Rick Quary the 
Demons veteran right fielder. 

But Northwestern is going to 
need a lot more hellp than just 
from Quary. 

"Our pitching will definitely 
be the big question mark at 
the beginning," said Hrap- 
man, "But if the pitching 
comes around quickly and 
everyone else works hard, 
then I believe that they can 
make a very good showing. 

Northwestern will be 
counting on the arms of Jay 

Weaver, Butch Cole, Mark 
Hogan, Dean Bertuccini, and 
Sammy Lewis. These five will 
have to come around quickly if 
the Demons expect to be tough 
this year. 

Weaver, who will head up 
the pitching staff, had an 
excellent summer playing 
semi-pro ball in Opelousas. 
The tall righthander won 9 
while losing only two games 
and posted a tough .072 earn 
run average. It will be on 
Weaver's shoulders that much 
of the responsibilities will fall. 

But not to be forgotten will 
be Cole, Hogan, Lewis and 
Bertuccini. All four will be 
returning veterans with 
valuable playing experience 
under their belts. Lewis had 
the lowest ERA of the five 
returnees. Smith has also 
recruited Dueane Bartlett to 
help with the pitching. 

In the infield NSU has Bud 
Oberle at first base. But there 

will be a battle for second base 
between Nora Listach and 
Curtis Ardoin. Listach broke 
his leg early in the season and 
Ardoin filled in and did a fine 
job. David Hunt is expected to 
return to his shortstop 
position. Freshman Mark 
Phillips will back him up. 

"For us to be strong this 
year, David Hunt will have to 

have the year that he is 
capable of having," said 

George Barefield will be at 
third, but could be pushed by 
newcomer Clinton Bergeron. 

Danny Meyers and Rick 
Quary will be returning to the 
outfield for the Demons. Smith 
has added a lot more depth to 
those keys positions in the 

forms of freshmen Danny 
Good, Sam Johnson and junior 
college transfers Mike Railey 
and Mickey Hartmen. Hart- 
men is from Grayson County 
Junior College and Railey, a 
two-time all Texas Eastern 
Conference and all-regional, 
player, is from Panola Junior 

Behind the plate, the 
Demons will have Charlie 
Cockfield, Alan Corville and 
Kurt Felton to handle the 
catching duties.

Demon Band sports new look 





-PLUS - 






The football team is 
definitely not the only group 
on campus preparing to 
"Wreck Tech" this weekend. 
Not far away, on the parking 
lot of Prather Coliseum, the 
NSU Demon Marching Band is 
also hard at work on a half- 
time show for a battle-of-the- 
bands that is as much a part of 
the state Fair tradition as the 
football contest itself. 

As those attending the 
Stephen F. Austin and Nor- 
theast games have seen, the 
Demon Band has a new look 
this year. The band has 
changed to a drum-and-bugle 
corps style of marching, 
which involves the use of 
contrasting marching styles to 
suit the style of the music. 

Another new idea now 
employed by the band is the 
use of a free-style drum 
major, a position ably filled by 
Bill Tate. Coupled with a wide 
variety of new music, the 
changes have proven most 
effective on the field, as 
evidenced by audience 
reactions that have proven 
most effective on the field, as 
evidenced by audience 
reactions that have been only 

To complete the new look, 
and hopefully very soon, the 
band hcs ordered new 
uniforms. These will not only 
be more stylish and up-to- 
date, but will be better suited 
to the new style of inarching 
than the present, well-worn 

Along with the new look has 
come a new outlook. With a 
membership of only 90, the 
Demon Band is relatively 
small, but only in numbers, as 
football audiences have 
already seen — and heard. 
The sheer determination that 
drives this spirited group as 
reflected in the full, powerful 
sound twice its size. According 
to Dr. Jerry R. Payne, band 

director, this attitude is what 
makes this year's Demon

NEW LOOK— The new look of the Northwestern 
Band is shown as they form the new logo of the 
university before the Northeast game in 
Shreveport. The band under the direction of Dr. 
Jerry Payne will perform at the Tech game, 
Jacksonville, Troy State and the McNeese 

Bordelon, said, "This new look 
has also given the band 
members a new look. I feel we 
are performing much better 
than we have in the past 
simply because the members 
have adopted to this new style 
and they are enjoying it 

Bordelon added, "I'd like to 
say one of the reasons we are 
doing so well is because of the 
conpetency of the students 
leaders, but that's not the real 
reason. Dr. Payne has spent a 
lot of time on this new style 
and he has done a fantastic job 
this year." 

Assistant band director is 
percussion instructor Don 
Keipp. This year's band 
council officers along with 
Bordelon are Leslie Hale, 
secretary; Susan Kelly, 
reporter; Linda McKnight and 
Vince Williams, freshman 
representatives; Chuck 
Lionburger, sophomore 
representative; Laura 
McKnight and Terry Hopkins, 
junior representatives; and 
Eddie Thompson and Tonia 
Wimberly, senior represen- 
tatives. Featured twirler is 
Sherry Anderson. 

Mock election scheduled 

by Mark Smith 
NSU students will have the 
opportunity to vote for can- 
didates vying for state-wide 
offices on October 22, more 
than a week before the 
November general election, 
according to Student Body 
President, J. Gregory Ross. 

Ross said this will be a mock 
election in which students in 
colleges throughout Louisiana 
will indicate their preference 
of candidates running in the 
general election. The results 
of the mock election, which is 
actually a poll, will be sent to 
UPI where they will be 

The idea of the election was 
conceived by the student 
government president of 
Nicholls State University. It is 
designed to poll the attitudes 
of Louisiana college students 
in the upcoming election. 

When brought before the 
Senate, the idea received a 
favorable response but 
required no formal action. 
Ross said that the ballot may 
include some local races such 
as senatorial and sheriffs. 

Voting will be done on paper 
ballots because voting 
machines cannot be dispat- 
ched so near a major election. 
Ross said this is a fun election 
and encouraged all students to

Tudor Construction Co. of Alexandria 
was the apparent low bidder on Nor- 
thwestern State University's 15,000-seat 
Harry "Rags" Turpin Football 
Stadium, according to NSU Athletic 
Director George Doherty. 

Tudor'sbase bid on the stadium work 
was $4,083,600 while the total bid, in- 
cluding the five alternates, came to 

The alternates are a sound system, 
new field lighting, artificial turf, 
renovate the underside of the existing 
stadium and a new scoreboard. 

"This bid is in line with our 
estimates," said Loran Lindsey, 
Building Program Coordinator at 
Northwestern. "We've taken all the 
bids under advisement to check on a 
few details and we expect to award a 
contract by Nov. 1." 

Doherty said construction on the 
stadium should begin immediately 
after the contract is awarded. 

When construction begins as 
scheduled during the first week of 
November, the contractor will have 10 
months to comnlptp the East side (6,000 

seats) ot the stadium and the field 
(artificial turf). The contract states

The Louisiana Faculty Planning and 

Control Department has awarded the 
contract for $645,875 to Industrial 
Design and Construction, Inc., of 
Natchitoches for the first phase of 
Northwestern State University's 78- 
acre outdoor recreation complex. 

The contractor began this week 
moving onto the project site, whichis 
located west of the Highway 1 bypass. 
Construction is to begin immediately 
and is to be completed in 360 days, 
according to terms of the contract. 
Included in the construction of the 
first phase of the recreation complex 
are an outdoor Olvmpic-size swimming 
pool, a modern pool service building, a 
roadway to the facility and parking lots 
for some 70 automobiles. 

Funeral services were held Friday 
for Albert A. Fredericks, 84, former 
president of Northwestern State 
University and a long-time state 
elected official who died here last. 
Wednesday night after a long illness. 

Services for Fredericks, who was 
Northwestern 's president from 1934 
through 1941, were conducted at the 
First United Methodist Church in 
Natchitoches, and burial was in the 
American Cemetery here. 

Executive secretary to Gov. Earl K. 
Long of Louisiana from 1948 to 1950 and 
from 1959 through 1960, Fredericks also 
served two four-year terms on the State 
Board of Education from 1948 through 

Fredericks was Commissioner of 
State Welfare from 1950 to 1952 and 
served as chairman of the Louisiana 
Commission on the Aging from 1959 to 
1963. He was also a special represen- 
tative to the White House Conference of 
the Commission on the Aging. 

A special representative of the 
Kansas City Southern and Louisiana 
and Arkansas railroads for more than 
30 years, Fredericks was also a 

member of the State Board of Com- 
merce and Industry from 1948 to 1960. 

Fredericks, who was named 
President Emeritus of Northwestern in 
1964, was a native of Clear Lake in

Normal School, and he later attended 
Louisiana State University. 

Beginning his career in education as 
an agriculture teacher at Sharp near 
Boyce, Fredericks later accepted a 
position as a teacher of agriculture at 

In 1932, he began his political career 
by winning a seat in the State Senate 
from the 24th Senatorial District. He 
served for 16 years in the Senate and 
was a member of the Senate during his 
tenure as Northwestern 's president. 

Fredericks' tenure at Northwestern 
produced the most extensive building 
program in the history of the institution 
up to that period. More than $3 million 
was spent in new construction during 
his seven years as president. 

Fredericks, who joined the Nor- 
thwestern faculty in 1919 and served for 
22 years at the university, had been a 
farm demonstration agent in East and 
West Feliciana Parishes in 1917, a state 
dairy agent in 1918 and manager of the 
Farmers' Cooperative Creamery in 
early 1919 before coming to Nor-

According to Bill Melder, Coor- 
dinator of the NSU Office of Veterans 
Affairs, the GI Bill may be soon brought 
to an end. The U.S. House of 
Representatives voted to end 
educational benefits to anyone who 
enlists in the armed services after Dec. 
31, 1975. Veterans qualifying under the 
program prior to the December cutoff 
will have until Dec. 31, 1987, to complete 
their education. The bill has now been 
sent to the Senate. 

This bill would bring an end to the 
educational benefits provided by the GI 
Bill which have made it possible for 
many individuals, who would not have 
been able to afford it otherwise, to 
further their education. There has been 
an attempt to assure the passage of the 
current legislation by the addition of 
the much needed extension of benefits 
from 36 to 45 months for all veterans. 
This extension is definitely needed, but 
the overall isse should not be 
overlooked; namely, the termination of 
the entire program for those now en- 
tering the service. 

This attempt to terminate the GI Bill 
is being made without the support of the 
veterans organizations. The Veterans 
of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, 
and the National Association of Con- 
cerned Veterans support continuation 
of the educational program in some 

The major argument for terminating 
the GI Bill has been the cost of the 
program. The facts indicate this is one 
government program that has worked. 
Studies have shown that for every 
dollar spent on the GI Bill, at least four 
dollars is realized from increased tax 
revenues due to the better-educated 
veteran having a better-paying job. 
Also, there are some savings in reduced 
unemployment compensation paid to 
veterans who have used these benefits. 

Melder urges the veterans of NSU to 
contact their U.S. Senators and express 
their feelings about this current 
legislation. Assistance in this matter 
may be obtained through the Office of 
Veterans Affairs, Room 100, Caldwell

The Way I See It 

"Green Room "in sad shape 


Last week when Buck- 
minster spoke here, what 
started out to be a small, 
short, informal press con- 
ference turned into a rather 
large, rather long, but still 
fairly informal press con- 
ference. There were reporters 
and cameramen KALB-TV 
(Alexandria), KNOE-TV 
(Monroe), KSLA-TV 
(Shreveport), The Shreveport 
Times, The Alexandria Daily 
Town Talk, KWKH-AM 
(Shreveport-Bossier City), not 
to mention interested students 
(with cassette recorders) and 
the personnel from this 
newspaper and the univer- 
sity's news bureau. 

But it isn't the press con- 
ference, but it's location that 
came to my attention, or 
rather, was brought to my 

For convenience, the in- 
terviews were conducted in 
the "Green Room" of the Fine 
Arts Building. This room is 
often used on such occasions 

before and after they speak. 
But the room is in really sad 

First of all, the door is 
warped, causing a loud noise 
each time it is opened (this 
was great for anyone taping 
the interview). Also, you 
practically have to put a 
shoulder to the door to get it 

Basically the overall con- 
dition of the room is 
disgraceful. The carpeting is 
faded and filthy, the 
acoustical tiles on the ceiling 
are falling, the windows look 
like they haven't been cleaned 
in months, and the furniture 
could really use new 
upholstery. The walls are ... 
well, the walls are green. 
What more can you say? 

It's a shame that a room like 
this one, which is so con- 
venient for use along with the 
stage, should remain in such a 
constant state of disrepair. 
And it is a shame that this is 
the representative area of the 

for visiting _ lecturers both 

Office "minutes "for the SBA 

university which is seen by so 
many "outsiders" ... such as 
invited speakers and guests 
and members of the press. 

The "Green Room," besides 
being used speakers and press 
conferences, is also used 
during the Lady of the 
Bracelet Pageant for judges, 
contestants and visiting 
queens, and when you go 
"back stage" after a theater 
production, it is the "Green 
Room" where you greet the 
actors and actresses. 

It is a much used room ... 
and it looks that way. I don't 
know who, but someone needs 
to fix it up. I hope that no one 
will even suggest that this task 
be put on the shoulders of the 
Drama Department. The 
entire university uses the 
"Green Room" and it should 
be the university who does 
something about fixing it up 
(the Drama Department 
probably had enough worries 
of its own with the two stages 
and dressing rooms). 

There seems to be a running 
feud between Greg Ross, 
president of the Student Body 
Association, and certain 
members of the Student 
Senate — hopefully not all of 
the members of the Student 

Last week, after a slight 
reprimand from "higher 
ups," Ross asked everyone to 
post office hours so that when 
any certain officer needed to 
be contacted (concerning SBA 
business), the party looking 
for him would be able to find 
him. This is a typical request 
made by most organizations 
who deal with the student body 
and staff of the university, 
especially among 
organizations where the of- 
ficers are on scholarship and 
are receiving money for their 


Also, like most of the offices 
to which this applies, no one 
expects them to be in the of- 
fice every second of the time 
they have posted as "office 
hours," since they are all 
students first and sometimes 
things come up. But if there 
are some kind of hours posted, 
chances are that they can be 
found if they are needed for 

But what resulted from 
Ross's request was a definite 
slap in the face, the way I see 
it. Jay Garcia, vice president 
for men, posted hours as 10:15 
to 10:19, Mondays, Wed- 
nesdays, and Fridays, for a 
total of twelve (12) minutes a 
week. SBA treasurer Clinton 
Davis posted his office hours 
as 3:30 to 3:45 Tuesdays and 

Thursdays, for a total of thirty 
(30) minutes a week. Martin 
Fontenot, senate chairman, 
posted a little more respec- 
table hours as 12:15 to 12:45 on 
Mondays, Wednesdays and 
Fridays for a grand total of 1 
hour and 30 minutes each 
week. The Vice President for 
Men and the Treasurer each 
receive a half-time scholar- 

What started out to be a 
simple request, and a request 
that was strongly needed (I 
haven't been able to reach 
Carol Lynn Martin, Clerk of 
the Senate, in two weeks), 
turned into a very sarcastic 
"nose thumbing" at Ross and 
at anyone who has business 
with these officers but can 
never find them. 

Don f t forget to vote 

Turn on the T. V., open any 
newspaper, listen to the radio, 
and you'll hear the same 
things, those great paid 
political announcements (the 
commercials for the 
politicians). Nov. 1 (next 
Saturday) you won't be able to 
watch any show, listen to any 
radio station (except maybe 
KNWD), or read any 
newspaper without being 
subjected to the campaigns of 
these people running for state, 
area and local offices. 

If you're registered at 
home, hopefully you are 
planning on going home to 

Heaven help us if Current 
Sauce was above mistakes! 
But we are not infallable; we 
do make mistakes, all the 
time. And this time we made a 
good one. 

In our October 14 issue, we 
printed a short article under 
"Three Columns" concerning

vote. If you are registered 
here in Natchitoches, don't 
forget to go vote (though I 
don't know how you could with 
every media filled with 
political messages). 

There are some very strong 
runners, and some you and I 
have never heard a word 
from. There are local 
politicians going in for another 
time around (hopefully for 
them) and newcomers on the 
political scene. In short, there 
are a lot of choices and a lot of 
candidates, and a few difficult

As pointed out by an employee 
of one of the local banks, most

which is, in your own opinion, 
the best choice for all con-

city, the area and the state. 
The 18 to 25 year old voter has 
enough common sense and 
enough intelligence to make 
good choices if he will take the 
time to do so. 

Look to past records of 
incumbents, look to the 
promises on the strong run- 
ning newcomers, but don't 
look to the old standards for 
electing our officials — look to 
setting some new standards. 
But by all means VOTE!

all for 

Voters go to polls Nov. 1 

Louisiana voters will go to the 
polls Saturday to cast ballots in eight 
statewide races and numerous area 
and local elections in this, the first 
year of open primaries in state 

The new state constitution, 
adopted two years ago, calls for 
open primaries in all general 
elections. Put another way, there 
will be no more Republican or 
Democratic primaries. All can- 
didates, regardless of party af- 
filiation, will be listed on the same 
ballot, throwing out the necessity of 
a general election later. 

Runoff elections will be held later 
this year for any races in which one 
candidate does not receive the 
necessary majority of votes. 

Of the eight state races, there are 
incumbent candidates in all but one. 
The only missing incumbent, 
secretary of state Wade O. Martin, is 
one of six candidates for governor. 

In the only area race, incumbent 
State Senator Paul Foshee faces a 
strong challenge from Don G. Kelly 
and John W. King in the race for 
state senator from the 31st 
Senatorial District. 

There are also four local races to 
be decided, including parish elec- 
tions for sheriff, clerk of court, 
police jury and parish executive 


Five candidates are chasing after 
Edwin W. Edwards of Crowley in the 
governor's race, but pre-election 
polls have shown that the incumbent 
governor is almost unbeatable. 
Edwards is the second governor to 
take advantage of a constitutional 
amendment passed during the 
administration of John McKeithen 
which allows a governor to succeed 

Prior to that, no governor could 
succeed himself in office. 
McKeithen pushed the new amend- 
ment through the\ Legislature, and 
the state voters passed it by a wide 
margin. McKeithen later won a 
second term in a landslide, and 
Edwards is hoping for a similar 
outcome this time around. 

Edwards' strongest challenger is 
State Senator Bob Jones of Lake 
Charles. Jones, son of former 
governor Sam H. Jones, has waged a 
year-long campaign against Ed- 
wards, criticizing the governor for 
his alleged failure to fulfill cam- 
paign promises. 

Secretary of State Martin is the 
third major candidate in the 
governor's race. The other three 
candidates are Ken Lewis Cecilia M. 
Pizzo and A. Roswell Thompson. All 

six candidates are Democrats. 

Incumbent Lieutenant Governor 
James E. Fitzmorris of New Orleans 
faces a challenge from three con- 
tenders William J. Bowen, 
Frederick D. Perkins and Lance A. 
Britton. None seem likely to push the 
incumbent very much. 

Britton, the only Republican 
running for a statewide office, will 
be bidding to become the first 
Reoublican to hold a statewide office 
since Reconstruction, over 100 years 

His candidacy has been marred 
with controversy, including an at- 
tempt in some parishes to refuse to 
honor his selected election com- 
missioners, which parishes are 
required to do under the new elec- 
tion laws. Each party is entitled to 
name election commissioners, but 
since he is the only Republican 
candidate, in many places some 
parishes refused all Republican 


With no incumbent in the 
Secretary of State election, the race 
appears to be a wide-open one with 
four candidates vying for the 
position. P. J. Mills of New Orleans 
is the leading candidate, but he is 
receiving a strong push from State 
Senator Paul Hardy. Huey P. 
Coleman and William L. Klause, Jr., 
are the other candidates in the race. 

The secretary of state in 
Louisiana is involved in the record- 
keeping process and carries little 
political power in the way of 
lawmaking or determination of 


A two-man race is in the offing in 
the attorney gerneral's race, with 
incumbent William J. Guste, Jr. 
facing Risley C. "Pappy" Triche. 
The two have waged a hot campaign 
for the job, with allegations and 
counter-allegations the rule rather 
than the exception. 

Guste has been under fire recently 

on several fronts, notably the abrupt 

resignation of three of his top aides 

in the attorney general's office and 

charges of malfeasance in office. 

The latter stems from the acquiring 

of land, by Guste,, that . allegedly 
spared in value after his omceTi 

decision to locate a state park near 

that land. 

Triche has been involved in state 

government before as part of the 

administration of former governor 

Jimmie Davis. During this time he 

received criticism for his role in 

alleged governmental scandals such 

as the Sunshine Bridge construction. 

SB2 at a stance j 

Dave L. Pearce, the incumbent 
commissioner of agriculture, is 
receiving a strong challenge from 
four candidates, Gilbert L. Dozier, 
Hugh G. Oliver, Earl R. Banks and 
Lantz Womack. At least four of the 
candidates are given a chance at 
winning the position, and a runoff is 
almost certain. 


Seven candidates are running for 
Commissioner of Insurance, with 
incumbent Sherman A. Bernard 
heading the list. Strong challengers 
include former New Orleans mayor 
Victor H. Schiro and Warren J. 
"Puggy" Moity, Sr. 

Also running for the position are 
Thomas A. Barcelona, Sr., Jean C. 
Bell, Jim Rentz and Winston W. 

Four strong candidates are among 
the five seeking the post of 
Superintendent of Education. In- 
cumbent Louis J. Michot is 
challenged by former Superin- 
tendent William J. Dodd, educator 
Kelly Nix and television executive 
Phip Oakley. William Earl Noonan, 
Jr., is the fifth candidate in the race. 

Michot and Dodd, both 
businessmen, are expected to wage 
a close rade, but Nix, one of the few 
educators ever to seek the position, 
has campaigned hard on the failures 
of the previous administrations to 
face the problems of state education. 


Three candidates are seeking the 
newly-named Commissioner of 
Elections post. Incumbent Douglas 
Fowler is being challenged by 
Jerome A. Sauer and Delores 
Burrell Vanison. 

Incumbent Foshee's major op- 
position comes from Natchitoches 
attorney Kelly, and the twosome

If your hair's tinted, drastically colored or super dry, you probably need a heavy con- 
ditioning regimen. Besides using a regular conditioner every time you wash your hair, 
you should use a conditioning pack once every week or two. If your hair's been colored 
and your scalp's dry, apply the pack all over your head, then wrap with a hot towel 
for a half hour or so. If your scalp's oily, apply the pack about four inches away from 
scalp and skip the hot towel (see above). Rinse well, and be sure to finish with cold 
water — it seems to make hair extra shiny and more elastic, tightens scalp pores. One 
good heavy-duty conditioner you can run out and buy at the store right now is con- 
dition* Beauty Pack Treatment by Clairol. It's a deep-penetrating cream conditioner 
that's great for dealing with all kinds of problems — like limpness, dullness, brittle- 
ness, dryness, sun damage, over-permanenting. You'll see your hair getting shinier, 
bouncier — stronger! Apply Beauty Pack as described above. In a hurry? Try Clairol's 
Instant condition* Lotion Treatment. After a shampoo/ rinse, work it in, leave on for 
5 minutes and rinse out.

Hotsauce has to agree with you, this 
is really a problem. Especially when 
the library does publish it's hours in all 
of the university publications and they 
don't abide by them. 

According to library sources, the 
number of people using the library 
from 11-12 was not sufficient enough to 
keep it open. They said a survey was 
made every 15 minutes from 11-12 p.m. 
for one year and from those figures, 
library officials decided the extra hour 
was unnecessary. But if you are going 
to rely on just that one means then by 
the same token, students in the 
cafeteria could take a survey to see if 
the food they have to eat is worth 
serving and I think we all know what 
the results of that survey would be— but 
you can bet your library card that they 
wouldn't close down the cafeteria an 
hour earlv.

by Olu Akinrinade 

The Northwestern State 
University Interracial Council 
has been reorganized after a 
year of inactivity, according 
to Frederick C. Bosarge, dean 
of Student Personnel and 
chairman of the council. 

The council which was 
formed in the fall of 1972 was 
relatively active at its 
inauguration. It became 
inactive because of lack of 
attendance and meaningful 
input from the members. 
There is presently a great 
need for the council, hence its 

Bosarge said the purpose of 
this student, faculty and staff 
council will be to recommend 
and advise appropriate 
campus agencies on matters 
of concern which affect 
human relationships on 

cultures and values of life 
styles. It will help any 
member of the campus 
community who wishes to 
voice a problem in the human 
relations area. Bosarge said 
the council welcomes the input 
of students, faculty and staff. 

The 22 member council 
represents a cross section of 
the entire university. There 
are 14 students chosen from 
various organizations serving 
on the council. Others include 
six staff members chosen 
because their jobs may have 
caused them to be involved in 
interracial relations and two 
faculty members selected by 

the faculty Senate Chairman. 

Student members include: 
Martin Fontenot and Stan 
Hayes, for the SB A; Rick Ford 
andLeoGatson, AMS; Brenda 
Greer and Paula Williams, 
AWS; Olu Akinrinade and 
Kanta Deeying for In- 
ternational students. Cheryl 
Babcock, Peggy Delery, Artie 
Gibson and Andre Spivey were 
chosen at random. The SUGB 
is yet to choose its own 

The council, which will meet 
twice a month, had its first 
meeting on Wed. Oct. 22,

John Hague, photography 
director— the bureau collects 
news of persons and events on 
campus and sends it to 
newspapers across the state. 

Pierce said the bureau 
makes every effort to 
publicize the ac- 
complishments of NSU 
students and faculty and the 

programs of the university. 
"A lot of people hear of NSU 
through the releases we send 
out," remarked Pierce, "It's a 
recruiting factor." 

In addition to these news 
releases and the student 
handbook and catalog, the 
bureau works with NSU's 
graphic arts department in 
the publication of nursing 
school bulletins, weekly 
calendars of events, and 
various departmental pam- 
phlets and booklets. 

Sports information is 
another concern of the In- 
formational Services Division. 
The sports division sends news 
releases concerning athletic 

events at Northwestern to 
newspapers throughout the 
state. It also cooperates with 
television and radio stations in 
their coverage of NSU sports. 
In addition, this office is 
responsible for the operation 
of the press box at athletic 
events, the printing of sports 
programs, and the selling of 
sports advertisements. 

Yet another responsibility of 
the news bureau is 
photography. The 
photography division is 
concerned with photos used 
with news releases and other 
publications of the bureau. 
Another very important duty 
of this division is the 
production of game films for 

the athletic department which 
are used for study by the

What "spooks" you? For 
many years it was a mystery 
to me why people seem to be 
addicted to ghost stories, 
horror movies and the like. 
Why, too, are there so many 
frightening elements in 
children's stories, I wondered. 

Transactional Analysis and 
its explantion of "scripting" 
or our being programmed to 
recall the familiar feelings of 
childhood gives great insight 
into our need to be "spooked." 
Imagine the strong feelings of 
awe that have been buried in 
our subconscious by the birth 
process itself. It is beyond our 
ability to remember, but our 
coming forth from the cozy 
womb into a world of air, and 
light and loud asounds is so 
full of awe and trauma, and 
we fail to recognize this when 
looking upon birth from a 
grown-up point of view. 

There is also another 
universal experience from 
which feelings are recalled by 
many of our Halloween 
frights. A baby adjusts to the 
loving people in its life, but 
there comes the day when 
those people have to correct, 
scold or spank the child. The 
brows are furrowed, the fact

turns red, the teeth are bared, 
and the person that the child

experience for the young, and 
it is no wonder that the bogey-

Analysis sees similarity

Then what should "spook"

my opinion the experience of 
Elijah the Prophet told the 
19th Chapter of I Kings speaks 
to this matter. Elijah was 
fleeing for his life from the 
wrath of the witch-like Jezebel 
. Because Elijah needed all 
the help he could get, he 
headed for Mount Sinai where 
God had met with Moses. 
There Elijah experienced a 
great wind that tore the and an 
earthquake and a fire. In all 
these great showings of 
physical power Elijah did not 
find God. Rather, it was in a 
still, small voice, a tiny 
whispering sound , a gentle 
voice, that Elijah met God. 
How can this be? Tornadoes, 
earthquakes and fire are

fact greatness built into us by 
the Creator is more cause for

To the Editor, 

Some people say that 
today's NSU student won't 
work hard, isn't willing to take 
on the dirty jobs, and can't 
produce the goods. To this we 
politely reply, "Bunk!" Last 
Friday a group of Circle-K's, 
clad in an assortment of work 
costumes took on the library's 
long-neglected fountain with 
an assortment of cleaning 
tools. They scraped and 
scrubbed away an ac- 
cumulation of fifth that was 
clogging the pump and 
pumped out enough sewage to 
exceed the output of a dirty 
political campaign. 

Now that the hard job is 
done and the fountain is once 
again clean and operating, it 
is to be earnestly hoped that 
people will refrain from 
throwing foreign matter in it. 
As for Circle-K, all we can say 
is "the quality went in before 
their brand went on." 

The library staff join me in 
expressing thanks to these 
fine young people. 

Donald N. MacKenzie 
Library Director 

(Editor's Note: Current 
Sauce would like to add its 
thanks. The fountain had 
become an eyesore instead of 
the "artistic" sculpture it had 
been designed to be. We hope 
that the regular job of keeping 
the fountain clean will soon be 
resumed by whoever is sup- 
posed to maintain it so that 
lengthy periods of neglect will 
no longer occur.)

At the end of the first half it 
was Jacksonville ahead 7-0, 
that score coming early in the 
first quarter when Jackson- 
ville managed to block a 
Dennis Pendergraft punt that 
rolled into the end zone and 
was recovered by JSU. 

Ever iihough Jacksonville 
was ahaad by a touchdown, it 
did not look that bad for the 
Demons. However, in a little 
bit of strategy the Gamecocks 
kicked off to the Demons to 
start the second half. Nor- 
thwestern could not move the 
ball and was forced to punt. It 
was here that the Gamecocks 
began to move in for their 
second touchdown. 

"It was still raining at the 
beginning of the second half, 
but not as hard as it had been. 
But Jacksonville wasn't going 
to pass the ball, they didn't 
need to," said Williams, "I

"Jacksonville just played

rain and the mud, they just 
had those big linemen and 
backs come straight at us. The 
rammed the football down our 
throats the whole night." 

It took JSU only eight plays 
to put the ball over the goal 
line and the Demons were then 
faced with a 14-0 score. 

"Well, the rain has stopped 
enough to let Butch pass the 
ball some," said Williams,

responded with a pretty good 
effort." Ballard was eight of

Another excellent performance by Sports Editor Philip 
Timothy has brought the Big fellow all the way from last 
place to third Timothy Trails leader Steve Colwell by only six 
games. And by the looks of things a good week for Timothy 
and he could go ahead of Colwell, who has been slipping 
every since that lucky 15-0 week. 

But in other action of the panel the battle between Rick 
Quary and Bud Oberle ended with Quary emerging as the 
victor. Oberle who was 8-7 for the week was just no match for 
Quary's 10-5 performance. Timothy, however, had to com- 
bine their records which showed the students finishing with a

So with the seventh week of football over Colwell still leads 
the Panel with a 60-30 overall mark followed by the faculty 
with a 59-31 tally. The faculty continues their excellent 
showing as Athletic Director George Doherty had a very 
respectable 9-6 record and continues to dog Colwell. Timothy

is now 57-33 overall and the students bring up the rear with a

Two coeds injured 
in dorm break -in 

LOVELY LADIES — These six young women are among nineteen 
to compete for the title of Northwestern's Lady of the Bracelet. 
Denise Davenport, Laura Bailey, "Scotti" Dawson, Maria 
Conant, Sherry Fontenot, and Faith Druchel took time out from 
their pre-pageant activities to pose for a picture at Chaplin's 
Lake. The Lady of the Bracelet Pageant will be held Nov. 18, but 
the contestants have busy schedules of preliminary judging prior 
to the pageant. The Lady of the Bracelet is NSU's official beauty 

Two NSU coeds are in the Nat- 
chitoches Parish Hospital under ob- 
servation as the result of a bizarre 
incident which occurred on the Nor- 
thwestern campus Monday night. 

Marsha Lynn Fuller, sophomore 
from Winnfield, is under observation 
for what was thought at first to be a 
broken jaw, but has been determined in 
stead as having a contusion of the jaw. 
Also in the hospital is Patricia Lynn 
Skerrett, sophomore from Baton 
Rouge, with lacerations of the head. 
Both girls received the injuries when a 
twenty-three year old black man en- 
tered Caddo Dorm and apparently 
assaulted them. 

Being held in the Natchitoches Parish 
Jail is Roy Jackson of 831 Saline St., 
who was apprehended by NSU 
University Police at approximately 5 a. 
m. in the dorm. 

Jackson is being held with no bond set 

Contestants talk of pageant 

Wouldn't you like to know a little 
about the Lady of the Bracelet con- 
testants before the night of the 
pageant? Current Sauce talked to six of 
the girls for this week's paper and will 
have information about the remainder 
of the contestants in the next two issues. 

Laura Bailey, a freshman elemen- 
tary education major, was entered in 
the Lady of the Bracelet Pageant by 
Delta Zeta. Her hobbies include playing 
piano, reading, and dancing. According 
to Laura, her talent for the pageant is a 
"fruity" military ballet danced to the 
theme from Patton. 

In the future, Laura hopes to teach 
school at the kindergarten level. 

Maria Conant, a P.E. major, was 
nominated by several organizations. 
Her hobbies are swiinming, tennis, 
bicyclin and other sports. She has been 
practicing hard on her dance routine, 
the talent she plans to use for the

and six different charges held against 
him. Those charges are: aggravated 
battery, attempted jjape, simple 
burglary, resisting police officers, and 
attempted aggravated rape. 

In the first of his three stops, for the 
night the culprit walked into the College 
Manor Apartment of Cheryl Belsha of 
Sulphur. Belsha was in the kitchen 
when he entered her apartment and 
started walking toward her with arms 
open. She ran to her bedroom locking 
the door and started to scream. People 
in the second bedroom heard her 
screams and came out only to see a 
man running away. This happened at 
approximately 4:30 a. m. 

After leaving there, the attacker is 
believed to have gone to Sabine Dor- 
mitory on campus. Residents of West 
Sabine saw the hand of a man as he 
tried to enter through a window. 

Not being able to enter Sabine, he 
then went to Caddo Dorm. On the third 
floor of Caddo, he knocked on the door 
of two black girls. One girl answered 
the door to find a man standing there 
with a .38 caliber handgun. He entered 
the room and' began talking with the 
residents. Heboid them to strip, but 
changed his mind and asked where 
some white girls lived. The girls asked 
him to sit down and tried to talk him 
into leaving but he persisted. He left the 
room and walked to the end of the hall 
and knocked on the door of a vacant 
room. When he left the girls phoned 
University Police. As he was knocking, 
a resident saw him and when he turned 
to leave, the attacker noticed the girl 
staring at him. He began to move 
toward her and the girl turned and 
locked herself in her room. He knocked 
on her door, but when she wouldn't 
answer, he left. 

He then went to Fuller's room. He 
walked in and told her to strip but she 
refused. The assailant then fired one 
round from his gun which struck a steel 
post about six and a half feet from the 
floor, ricocheting to the ceiling and 
finally resting on the bed. He began 
hitting her with the butt of the gun, as 
she screamed. 

He left and went to Skerrett's room at 
the other end of the hall, and told her to 
strip. Skerrett also refused and he 
began striking her with his revolver. 

By this time University Police, who 
had received the call from Caddo, were 
on the third floor in Fuller's room when 
they heard Skerrett's screams. Within 
minutes, Officers Warren Massia, 
Randy Weaver, and Frankie Cutright 
apprehended Jackson. 

Fuller and Skerrett were both taken 
to the NSU Infirmary by their house 
director, Linda Voss Smith and 
examined by NSU physician, Dr. Joe 
Thomas, later being transferred to the 
Natchitoches hospital. 

How the culprit entered Caddo Hall is 
undetermined at this time, according to 
University Police. "He could have 
entered by several ways," said Chief 
James Lee of the University Police. 

Director of Housing of Northwestern, 
Barbara Gillis, said, "I don't care to 
make any statements at this time." 

"There are a lot of if, ands, and buts 
as to how he got in, but my security 
monitor, Larry Williams, who left at 5 
p. m. told me both front doors were 
locked when he left," said Caddo House 
Director Iinda Voss Smith. 

Jackson will be held at the Nat- 
chitoches Parish Jail for six days 
beginning yesterday, until Judge 
Marvin Gahagan sets bond. 

Campus Police arrive 
for quarterly meeting 

NEWLY ELECTED — Elected in recent SBA elections to fill 
vacancies are Faula Jones, Debbie Hawkins, Lester Punch, 
Wanda Ball, La«e Pittard, Sylvia Cardenas, Sam Wellborn, and 
Mary McCormck. The senators, representing freshman, 
sophomore, junor, and senior classes, were sworn in by Dr. 
Richard Gallomy, Vice-President of Student Affairs, at the past 
two meetings o : the Student Senate. 

The Campus Police Department of 
Northwestern State University has 
announced that it will host the fall 
quarterly meeting of the Louisiana 
University Police Association begin- 
ning Tuesday. 

Northwestern Campus Police Chief 
Jimmy K. Lee said more than 60 of the 
association's 242 members will par- 
ticipate in the meeting, which will begin 
at 8:30 a. m. in the NSU Student Union 

Raymond L. Beck, director of 
campus police at the University of New 
Orleans, is president of the Louisiana 
University Police Association. 

Other officers of the state campus 
police organization are Al Glaude of the 
University of Southwestern Louisiana, 
vice president; Wade Dupuis of Nor- 
theast Louisiana University secretary, 
and L. J. Nuccio, University of New 
Orleans, treasurer. 

Lee said campus police officers from 
all colleges and universities in the state 
will be represented at next month's 
meeting, which will include a variety of 
workshop sessions designed to upgrade 
the effectiveness of campus police 
throughout the state. 

Dr. Richard Galloway, vice president 
of student affairs at Northwestern, will 
welcome the campus police officers to 
the meeting, during which honorary 
memberships to individuals who have 
given outstanding service to the 
association will be awarded. Galloway 
is an honorary member of LUPA. 

Also addressing the convention will 
be J. Gregory Ross, Northwestern 
senior from Jennings who is president 
of the NSU Student Government 

"It is hoped that the students' 
viewpoints and suggestions will be 
presented to the meeting and that a 
mutual understanding will be 
developed by including students on the 
agenda in the future," said Beck. 

The importance of physical fitness to 
the police officer will be the subject of a 
session conducted by Eugene Christ- 
mas, a registered rehabilitation 
therapist and NSU's athletic trainer. 

Following the discussion on physical 
fitness will be a business meeting 
during which time a current report on 
survivor benefits from the national 
viewpoint will be presented. 

The role of the District Attorney's 
investigator will be discussed by John 
Manning, chief investigator for the 
local District Attorney's office. 

Lawrence S. McKenzie of the 
Louisiana Bureau of Emergency 
Medical Services, has been invited by 
the state association to discuss 
emergency medical services as it 
relates to the university campus. 

Highlighting the afternoon session 
will be a discussion on Act 269 of the 
State Legislature. This bill gave full 
state police powers to campus police 
departments on all college and 
university campuses across the state. 

University committee evaluates organizations 

by Olu Alinrinade 

The Northwesten State University 
Committee on Org2iizations the 
future, take a cloar look at the con- 
stitution and membership of campus 
organizations thatire to be chartered. 

This, accordinj to Dr. Richard 
Galloway, vice pesident of Student 
Affairs and chairnan of the committee, 
is in keeping win the 1972 federal 
government "Tife DC of of Higher 
Education Anandment" which 
prohibits the excusion of any person 
from an organiztion on the basis of 

Sec. 901 (a) of te amendment states, 
"No person in th United States shall, 
on the basis of sx, be excluded from 
participation in, * denied the benefits 

of, or be subjected to discrimination 
under education program or activity 
receivin federal financial assistance, 

On this basis, Dr. Galloway ex- 
plained, new organizations will be 
required to make provision for all sexes 
in their constitutions and membership 
before they can be granted charters. 
Admission is also not to be denied on the 
basis of race, color, religion and ethnic 

Copies of the constitution and by-laws 
are to be submitted to the committee 
and membership is expected to be 
made up of registered students, faculty 
and staff. 

Other requirements to be met in- 
clude, statement on dues for each year 

or semester, functions and purpose of 
the organization and a list of its of- 

The committee on organizations 
which is composed of three 
representatives of the students, two 
faculty and two staff members, will 
then review the constitution and the 
organizations will be forwarded to the 
university president. He may sign the 
charter after reviewing the committee 

Mrs. Mamie Trunzler, coordinator of 
Orientation and Organizations, said the 
constitution of the newly chartered 
Velvet Knights had to be rewritten 
because there wasn't any provision for 
male membership. She said the Alpha 
Lambda Delta, a female honorary 

society, can now accept males who 
make a 3.5 average in one semester 
during their freshman year. 

Dr. Galloway praised faculty 
members who have encouraged 
professional organizations on campus. 
He said "These organizations are very 
important and I wish students will 
become more involved in them." 

He said "the university has gone out 
of its way to encourage organizations 
that recognize the educational mission 
of the school." 

There are about 95 chartered 
organizations on campus, including 
three new ones. The newly chartered 
are, NSU Radio Amateur Association, 
the Velvet Knights and NSU Pre- 
Medical Society.

By Shelley Hilton 

The Way I See It 

Coupon, Coupon, Who's Got the Coupon 

Last week Current Sauce 
was plagued with calls from 
various buildings who com- 
plained that they had not 
received copies of the Oct. 28 
issue— Though we simply 
neglected delivering them. In 
some cases this may be true- 
but not in all cases. 

There has been a rash of 
"coupon clippers" lose on 
campus who stand behind the 
corner of a building (like the 
library), clicking scissors and 
licking their chops in blissful 
anticipation of the delivery of 
the paper. Hunger is in their 
eyes as they see the bundle 
thrown in a purple distribution 
box. Then as the paper carrier 

drives away, the "coupon 
clipper" runs to the box and 
takes a dozen copies. 

It is very likely that there 
may be more than one 
"coupon clipper" awaiting the 
papers, hence, Current Sauce 
does a disappearing act equal 
to Houdini. 

Last week we stumbled 
upon a stack of papers outside 
the library, fifteen of them to 
be exact. 

They were neatly stacked 
just as our distributor might 
have left them —but all the 
coupons had been clipped. 

Now, this presents an in- 
teresting predicament. What 
do you do to help make it 

possible for every student, 
faculty member and worker to 
find a copy of Current Sauce? 
We tried to do it by increasing 
our press run from about 5000 
to 7000, but that doesn't seem 
to be helping. Our next 
alternative is to refuse to run 
coupons in the paper. Our 
advertisers will fight this 
every step of the way. The 
only other reasonable solution 
is to ask students to please be 
considerate and take only a 
couple of copies if they must 
take more than one at all. 
There should be more than 
enough to go around, coupons 
and all. And we've been told 
some people actually was to 
read the paper. 

What Do You Do After the Drop Date 

This is one group. They had 
trouble in a class. They didn't 
do well on a couple of tests or 
maybe a major paper. They 
missed more classes than they 
should have. They got behind. 
But they had several 
semesters left before they 
could graduate, so they took 
advantage of the university's 
"drop" procedure and got rid 
of their problem by getting rid 
of the class, .or maybe even 

But there is another group. 
They are also in trouble, didn't 
do well on a couple of tests or 
maybe a major paper, have 
missed too many classes, but 
there is a difference. They 
don't have an infinites number 
of semesters in which to take 
the class again. And they have 
missed the deadline of 
dropping classes. Now what 
do they do? 

The answer is to "crack- 
down." But sometimes this is 

easier said than done. Here 
are some ideas that may help. 

Look for "reasons" behind 
the problems and reduce them 
(whether it's watching too 
much TV or spending every 
night out at the Keg.) 

Get in the right frame of 
mind, a kind of "no one is 
going to keep me down" at- 
titude, and stick with it. 

Reorganize your setting for 
studying. Clear off your desk 
or table, get a new light bulb 
for your lamp, put a cushion 
on your chair, buy a clean 
tablet of paper and a new pen; 
do anything to make studying 
and reading as pleasant as is 
humanly possible. 

Make sure you're eating 
right and getting enough sleep 
to allow you to get up in the 
marning. By staying up all 
night trying to catch up you 
may be working against 

If you can't "get it" on your 

own, get help. There are 
numerous places to turn. First 
step is your instructor, but if 
that fails or falls short of your 
actual needs, try the girl down 
the hall, the fraternity 
brother, the Blue Key 
members who provide free 
tutoring in certain subjects 
(call Dean Bosarge's office for 
someone to contect from Blue 

Instead of spending next 
weekend at home, spend it 
copying notes you've missed 
or catching up on the reading. 

Go to the library. 

Do anything. Do something. 
Do it now. Next week may be 
too late. 

From talking to students 
this semester, it is strange to 
notice the number having 
trouble just forcing them- 
selves to go to class or to 
study. It may just be the mid- 
semester slump, but mid- 
semester is past and the time 
for action is now. 

Not To Be Missed 

Be listening to KNWD for 
some very interesting 
programming in the near 
future. This group of people is 
probably the most energetic 
and vibrant bunch on campus 
these days, and because of this 
we are being given quality 
listening material. 

Besides the regular musical 
programming there are some 
shows being planned that will 
be so important, as far as 
subject matter in concerned, 

that you need to make every 
possible effort to be able to 
listen to the programs. 

Those involved with the 
production of one show aren't 
even at liberty to discuss the 
subject of the show except in 
very general terms, but they 
have their reasons for doing 
this. For one thing, as most 
personnel involved with ad- 
vertising will agree, until a 
show is ready for broadcast,

A column of personal comments by NSU Campus Ministers. (This 
week's column is by Thomas A. Jones, minister of Grand Ecore 
Road Church of Christ.) 

During the last two years I 
have spent seven weeks 
outside the continental United 
States of America. Most of this 
time was spent talking to 
people in Salisbury, Rhodesia 
and Kingston, Jamaica. Since 
I was on a mission which 
brought people into a personal 
confrontation with their 
religion, I was not always the 
most welcomed one to come to 
the door or gate. Generally 
people were friendly; many 
people I met were afraid. 
Their fear is of people. You 
learn this by seeing the 
snarling guard dogs. The 
deocrative wrough-iron work 
around the porches and 
windows is not there just for 
looks as you discover when 
you see the massive locks. 
Even the beautiful long 
bladed, sharp pointed cactus 
which are many times planted 
in dsse rows along a chainlink 
fence are there, I was told, to 

keep prowlers out of the yard. 
Only in the United States of 
America did I see the majority 
of homes with open yards and 
no dogs or just pets. 

Fear is a dominant factor of 
the societies in many parts of 
the world. Fear is not absent 
even here in Natchitoches, yet 
we do not, up to this point in 
time, make such elaborate 
displays of protective devices. 
We still have a strong element 

of trust for our fellowman. 
Trust is important! It is 
reflected in the way we drive 
our cars. Now, we think that 
the traffic is bad around here 
at times and it is, but you can 
trust the majority to keep in 
line with the law and what is 
reasonable. Driving in J arnica 
demands that you do not trust 
anyone to do what is 
reasonable. Sure, they have 
learned to live with the 
situation and even seem to 
enjoy it at times. They had to 
in order to survive. But it calls 
for distrust on the part of all. 

I am thankful that I live in 
the United States of America. 
Yes, we have problems, even 
fear and distrust of some 
people, but by and large we 
trust each other. May we 
always keep this trust! God 
Bless America, land of those 
free (for the most part) from 
the fear and distrust of

The readers comment 

To the Editor, 

There are several areas 
concerning the operation of 
Northwestern's Student Body 
Association which apparently 
need clarification, as various 
items in the October 28 
Current Sauce were in error. 

First, I cannot agree that 
the overall management of 
student affairs by the SBA 
may be classed as "poor." 
The prior administration left 
in its wake- a deficit of ap- 
proximately $1500 which will 
be erased by this ad- 
ministration by the end of the 
fiscal year on June 30, 1976. 

Additionally, prior to this 
year, no financial records had 
been kept in the SBA other 
than those of the Controller's 
office, and the last budget was 
prepared two years ago wiien 
Jack Damico was president. 
The Student Body Association 
now operates with budget 
units, each of which is allotted 
money for the year as ap- 
proved by the Student Senate. 

With Northwestern serving 
as the host of this year's Tech 
game, NSU's SBA was given 
added responsibility. Ex- 
penditures last year were in 
the neighborhood of $1500 
although NSU was not the 
host. This year, our State Fair 
Committee did an excellent 
job for about $1,000 ($400 
under budget). Things ran 
smoothly, too, thanks to the 
hard work and planning of the 

Granted, the current SBA, 
like those in the past, has had 
its problems with elections, 

is a gross over- 
for the entire 

but "poor" 

Secondly, no one on the SBA 
Senate or Exec is having a 
running feud with SBA 
President Greg Ross. Had the 
editor of this paper taken it 
upon herself to attend Senate 
meetings or at least send a 
reporter, she might have 
realized this under the editor 
last year, covering meetings 
of the Senate was a standard 
operating procedure. 

What you may have been 
referring to is the fact that 
various SBA members do not 
favor closing a main road nor 
granting SBA funds to the Ag 
Club rodeo. A difference in 
views does not constitute "a 
running feud," however. 

Finally, the office hours (or 

minutes) posted by other 
officers and me were not a 
"slap in the face" of anyone. 
Indeed, they were merely a 
private joke between Ross and 
us in relation to the Executive 
Investigation Committee 
known as "Greg's Gestapo." 
The posted times were never 
meant to be taken seriously! 
I'm sure you'll find that 
correct hours will be posted 

Hot Sauce asked for 
suggestions for improving our 
SBA; I have two. First, 
elections should be run in 
strict adherence to the Con- 
stitution. Next, to close the 
gap in communications bet- 
ween the SBA and Current 
Sauce, the CS editor or a 
reporter should attend Senate

the last meeting I attended. So 
I have taken advantage of 
having a news editor who is 
also an SBA officer, and I have 
done other things. You know 
your SBA constitution well 
enough to know that the only 
stipulation is that a 
representative from the 
Current Sauce attend the

about that representative 
being the editor. 

Number three, I couldn't 
care less whether roads are 
closed or whether differences 
in views are merely called 
differences in views or called 
"running feuds," the point is 
that there is a great deal of 
animosity between members 
of the SBA and Senate. You

you wish, but if the jokes keep 
up at this rate, what will keep

Fuller predicted that 
mankind, in the next 10 years, 
could "find enough energy for 
all mankind while phasing out 
all use of fossil fuels and 
atomic energy," using only 
proven methods to enable the 
world to enjoy an unsurpassed 
standard of living. 

"Politics and war are ob- 
solete," Fuller declared, 
because of the ability to do 
much with little- 
epheneralization. For this 
statement, he received ap- 

Fuller claimed that the 
building world is years behind 
the aeronautical and nautical 
world and said that when he 
first entered the building 
world he found it "incredibly 

Ship and airplane engineers 
have always been acutely 
aware of weight, said Fuller, 
because they had to deal with 
the problems of air-worthiness 
and buoyancy. 

Fuller's most famous feat 
was a result of his application 
aeronautical building 

concepts. Over 100,000 of his 
revolutionary geodesic domes 
are all over the world, though 
many of them are in remote 
places such as the Arctic, the 
South Pole, and Mt. Fuji. 

Doming whole cities, the 
geodesic structures could 
enable controlled weather 
conditions, Fuller said, and 
the geodesic structures are 
able to withstand extreme 
weather conditions because of 
their high tensile strength. 
The structures are extremely 
lightweight and can be easily 
transported, many by 

"I can now say with 
assurance that it will soon be 
possible to deliver whole cities 
in a day." 

Another of Buckminster's 
accomplishments is the design 
of the floating tetrahedronal 
city which makes possible the 
habitation of the three-fourths 
of the earth's surface that is 
covered by water. In as early 
as 1967 the Japanese were 
interested and may build a 
pilot scale model. 

In the early 1930's Fuller 
designed and constructed his 
dymaxion car. The three 
wheel, 11-passenger vehicle, 
based on aeronautical prin- 
ciples, is 19M> feet long, and 
can turn its own length. It can 
obtain a speed of 120 miles per 
hour and uses an ordinary 
Ford V-8 engine. 

"Technology has advanced 
the world living standards to a 
point where 54 percent of the 
world's population now enjoy 
a quality of life known by only 
one per cent a century ago and 
this occurred as the 
population doubled," Fuller 

Though undreamed of ad- 
vances are possible, "only 
thousands or maybe a million 
know this and there are four 
billion people on this planet." 

"In 10 years we will have to 
do the things that need doing, ' ' 
Fuller emphasized, "not 
things to make money or 
political hay, and it's quite 
clear it will be everybody or 
nobody. That will be our final 

Fuller believes brain power 
to be our true wealth and said 
the mind "apparently has 
some access to eternity." 

"Anyone who has gone into 
the great beginning of science 
can never be an atheist 
because how can he believe 
human beings can run the 

"If you throw a piece of 
paper on the ground for 
someone else to pick up, we 
won't make it." 

Fuller concluded that his 
hope for the future was based 
on the "spontaneous com- 
passion of youth" and added, 
"If we're going to make it at 
all it's going to be Youth, 
truth, and love." 

After receiving a standing 
ovation, the 80-year old genius 
remarked, "When you are 
giving me a standing ovation 
you are really communicating 
to each other that you agree 
with what I have said, and that 
you understand what is going 
on. Through you I see a

What would you do if an 18- 
man chorus split itself into 
four groups and distributed 
themselves around the 
auditorium? Probably gape in 
wonder, especially after you 
heard the Gregg Smith 
Singers perform. 

The Gregg Smith Singers 
offered their special program 
of multidimensional sound as 
the highlight of their evening's 
performance last Wednesday 
night, as guests of the 
Distinguished Artist Series. 

The singers performed 
several numbers utilizing all 
areas of the Fine Arts 
Auditorium. The first 
demonstration of their 
unusual talent was two rounds 
done with four entries. 

The full scope of their talent 
was not realized until they 
sang "Four Quarters," a 
number arranged by Meyer 
Kupferman. With a group of 
four on stage, four to the left, 
six to the right, and four in the 
balcony, the groups sang in 
Latin, English, German and 
Chinese. They sang in three 

The arrangement had many 
music elements played 
against each other in a 
madcap, festive way. As the 
singers converged on the 
stage, the hodgepodge became 
more evident. Suddenly the 
singers shouted "Time's up," 
and sang a crazy quilt type 
number called "Time for a 
Coffee Break." This piece led 
the concert into intermission. 

The most fascinating aspect 
of the first half of the program 
was the fact that all the 
numbers were performed a 
cape 11a. 

The audience was in a state 
of nervous expectation as the 
Gregg Smith Singers returned 
to the stage after in- 

The second half of the 
program was composed of 
songs in which the soloist 
capabilities of various chorus 
members was demonstrated. 
Oresta Cybriwsky ac- 
companied the singers during 
this part of the concert. 

The Gregg Smith Singers 
performed three numbers as a 
tribute to Aaron Copland for 
his 75th birthday. They sang 

"The Boatman's Dance," 
Long Time Ago," and "I 
Bought Me A Cat." "I Bought 
Me a Cat" is a children's folk 
song in which various bar- 
nyard sounds were performed 
during the course of the num- 

The final presentation of the 
evening was a selection of 
songs from the Charles Ives' 
collection. The first number, 
"Old Home Day," was written 
in 1920 and is a nostalgj c look 
back at the songs of 
yesteryear. The tunes were a 
mixture of dance hall and 
parade songs. 

The second part of the 
selections was composed of an 
election song "William Will" 
and a college song "Son of a 

As the singers penormed 
"Son of a Gambolier," they 
dispersed themselves among 
the audience shaking hands 
and passing the time of day. 
The number ended with the 
chorus performing the song on 

After the final standing 
ovation of the evening and a 
roar of applause that brought 
the house down, the Gregg 
Smith Singers ended their 
performance on a solemn note 
with their singing of an old 
love ballad "Blow the Candle 

Attendance for the concert 
was poor, but those in at- 
tendance will long remember 
the versatile and entertaining 
talent of the Gregg Smith

Worst effort so far 

"Our freshmen played like 
freshmen and our older boys 
played even worse than that," 
said an infuriated Demon 
Head Coach A. L. Williams 
after watching his Demons 
lose their fifth straight game. 

Northwestern, which was 
shutout for the second straight 
week in a row, finished their 
last home game of the season 
on a very dismal note. The 
Demons, who for a second 
week were forced to play in the 
mud and rain could only 
manage 137 yards in total 
offense while the Defense 
gave up 24 points. 

Neither the Demon defense, 
the rain, or the mud seemed to 
slow the Trojans as they 
scored in the first three 
quarters and then toyed with 
the Demons in the final 

"We had no excuse for 
losing this week," said 
Williams "Even though the 
field was pretty bad we still 
should have beaten them." 
"I don't think that we had 

any standouts this week, said 

Williams, "I don't think that 
any of the boys played well." 

But there were a few bright 
spots for the Demons that did 
manage to shine through all 
the mud. They were Carol 
Broussard, Pat Collins, and 
Mark Rhodes. 

Broussard, who is one of 
three seniors on the team 
usually plays as a backup 
fullback behind Sidney 
Thornton. However, when 
Willie Rush broke his 
collarbone in practice last 
week, there left a void in the 
backup at noseguard. The void 
was filled by Carol Broussard. 

Broussard, who stands only 
5-foot-10 and weighs only 180 
was the backup noseguard 
behind Van Kyazr of Nat- 
chitoches. Before the night 
was over it was Kyzar who 
was backup noseguard behind 

The senior from Delcambre 
certainly made himself known 
to all in State Fair Stadium. 
Broussard was a one man. 
show against Troy State as he 
made five unassisted tackles 

along with one assisted tackle, 
sacked the Troy Quar- 
terback Bobby Lee for a nine 
yard loss and recovered a 
Gerald Collins'rumble early in 
the fourth quarter. 

While Broussard was put- 
ting on his one man show on 
defense, teammate Pat 
Collins was making himself 
known on offense. The 6-foot-4 
219 pound freshman from New 
Orleans coming off a recent 
knee injury made four 
receptions for 71 yards. 

Two of the receptions came 
late in the second quarter 
when the Demons tried to 
mount a drive before the half. 
Collins first reception went for 
12 yards and then Demon 
quarterback Butch Ballard 
stepped up into the pocket and 
connected for 32 yards and a 
first down at the Troy 42 yard 
line. The Demons, however, 
bogged down here and were 
forced to Dunt the balL Collins 

came back in the third quarter 
and grabbed his last two 
passes for 27 yards. 

In the middle of the fourth 
quarter after Demon quar- 
terback Butch Ballard fumbled 
the snap from center, fresh- 
man Mark Rhodes came in at 
the helm of the Demons. 
Ballard left the game after 
completing 7 of 16 for 109 
yards, but had one in- 
tercepted. Rhodes, however, 
could not move the team and 
Dennis Pendegraft came in to 

Rhodes got a second chance 
after Broussard recovered 
Collins' fumbled. Rhodes 
managed to move the Demons 
to the Troy 31 yard line before 
he loss 27 yards on two plays. 
The 31 yard line was the 
deepest penetration for the 
Demons the whole night. The 
Demons had one more chance 
to score late in fourth, but 
the offense failed 

to move. 

In the final try by the 
Demons, Rhodes bobbled the 
snap three times after making 
a 17 yard completion to wide 
receiver Mike Almond. 
Rhodes despite his shakey 
showing did show off his 
throwing arm as he com- 
pleted 3 of 5 passes for 47 
yards. On each of those throws 
the ball thrown by the fresh- 
man was nothing short of 

"Mark has been showing 
promise for us," said Williams. 
"But he has to learn to take 
the snap from the center. He is 
continuing to improve though 
and with that arm he going to 
be tough as soon as he gains 
some experience." 

The Demons are now 1-7 on 
the season and still must face 
McNeese, Southwestern, and 
Southeastern. All these games 
are going to be on the road.

Carol Broussard (with the three 
showing) leads the Demon defense 
against Troy State last Saturday 
night. Broussard who is one of three 
seniors on the team and usually is a

However, the move did not impress

the Trojans who beat Northwestern 



Anyone who ever saw Googy French 
walking around campus would never have 
dreamed that this guy could ever be a 
basketball player. I am sure that many of 
you might be wondering who Googy really 

Well, for those of you who haven't 
figured it out yet, Googy French was a 
guard on the Demons' junior varsity. I said 
was because Googy quit last week. Not 
because he wasn't a good basketball 
player, rather, because Googy was the 
victim of circumstances. 

But first, I would like to show you just 
how good he really was. Nicknamed the 
"Mighty Midget," Googy led Rapides High 
School to , the Class AA State Cham- 
pionships in 1973. He was a starting guard 
for the West Team in the 1973 Louisiana 
High School Ail-Star game and helped that 
team to victory. He was named the Most 
Valuable Player in District 3-AA with a 17 
point average and five assists per game. 
Googy swished a phenomenal 85 per cent of 
his free throws and 66 per cent of his field 
goals during his prep career. 

Googy hit 69 per cent in field goal 
shooting, 88 per cent from the free throw 
line and 690 points while at Rapides High 
and all those were records. 

In 1973 Googy signed a scholarship to 
come to Northwestern and play basketball. 
The coaches at Northwestern were very 
impressed with his shooting accuracy, 
defense, and especially his hustle. 
However, the only drawback that Googy 
might have had was that he stood only 5- 

When Googy signed with Northwestern, 
the Demons had just finished a dismal 6-19 
record and were badly in need of a quick 

It is here that things went all wrong for 
Googy. Little did he know that assistant 
coach Jack Herron, trying to help the shake 
Demon team, went to the Air Force where 
he picked up Howard Hughes, Larry 
Bivens, and Bernard Holder. Of those 
three only Holder remains with the team.

thwestern State University 
during the past two seasons, 
will miss the remainder of the 
1975 campaign with a broken 

Rush, a rugged 5-footr8, 183- 
pounder who prepped at 
Monroe-Neville, suffered the 
injury last Monday in a non- 
contact practice. 









"We're going to miss 
Willie," NSU Coach A. L. W- 
illiams said. "He's played 
about as much as a starter. 
This leaves us with very little 
depth at noseguard." 

Expected to step in at 
Rush's No. 2 noseguard spot is 
junior Fred Wiley, a 5-foot-9, 
208-pound junior from 
Jonesboro. Wiley will play 
behind freshman starter Van 
Kyzar, a 6-foot-2, 213-pounder 
out of Natchitoches. 

Rush is the second regular 
lost to the Demons for the 
season. Just prior to the 
season opener, starting 
defensive tackle Oscar 
Kessinger was lost for the 
season with a knee injury.

averaged 9.8 points a game and 5 assists. 
So, everything seemed all right for the 
"mighty midget." 

However, the next year Googy was not 
called up. HughtJ, Doug Brinson and 
freshman Lester Davii took up the duties 
as guards for the Demons. Early in the 
season Hughes quit amidst a lot of con- 
troversy. The duties then fell on Brinson and 
Davis, an untried freshman. Still Googy 
was not called up. As it worked out both 
Brinson and Davis performed well enough 
for the Demons, to help them to a second 
GSC Crown. 

Brinson graduated and Davis was the 
only guard. It looked as if Googy would 
finally get his chance. But once again he 
was cheated. Again the Demons had a real 
fine recruiting year and picked up some 
fine prospects. At this point things did not 
look good. Northwest ern,after repeating 
as Gulf South Champs, made some very 
good picks in their recruiting. 

Googy, however, was still extremely 
optimistic about his chances of cracking 
into the varsity. Googy, who was 
surrounded by top notch players, still felt 
that he had as good of a chance as the next 

However, Googy was being sort of left 
out of the picture. In practice ever so 
slowly he was edged out until seeing the 
writing on the wall, Googy made his 
decision. He went to head Lssketball coach 
Tynes Hilde brand and said^at he was 
tired of being the one left out. He said that 
he had had enough. 

Googy French was the victim of cir- 
cumstances. He was just unlucky in that 
Northwestern continued to draw in so 
many fine prospects that always gave 
them an overflow of people at every depth. 

Was his decision right? Yes, I believe it 
was. Googy saw what was happening and 
being the person that he is quickly put a 
stop to it. 

I think that given half a chance Googy 
. could have been a great player for Nor- 
thwestern. He had all the tools and cer- 
tainly all the dedication needed to play. 
The loss of Googy French is a very big loss 
for Northwestern.

Timothy retaliates 

I received a letter last week that I would 
like to share with a certain Phil Bordelon. 
The letter went like this. 

I wish to make it known to the student 
body of NSU and Phil Bordelon that I 
support you in your stand concerning the 
Picldn Panel. I think that quality is more 
important than quanity. 

Irate Fan- 

For those who don't know what is goin' 
on. Last week Hot Sauce ran a.question by 
Bordelon who is the president of the band. 
The question asked why in the history of 
the panel had a member of the band never 
been chosen as guest selector. It went on to 
ask whether I realized that the band had 
probably been to more games than most 
guest selectors and that I was afraid to 
have a knowledgeable picker on the panel 
for a change. But Bordelon did say that 
Steve Colwell had unquestionable com- 

In the answer to Bordelon I stated that 
"If I need him I'll call on him," and also I 
said that "I go for quality with my 
pickers." It also went on to my being on the 
panel on the basis of my slow start. But the 
things that cut the to speak, was the 
last sentence of the answer by Hot Sauce. 
It read : "I bet you Bordelon is 14 times as 
smart as you and probably 100 pounds 

Well that was all he wrote on that one. I 
now will answer Mr. Bordelon and Steve 
Colwell, who many do not realize writes 
Hot Sauce. 

First I would like to say that Mr. Bor- 
delon did have a very valid point about the 
band's attendance at games. The Band has 
attended the games. And a group even 
traveled to Nicholls State on their own. 
Needless to say they were very welcomed. 

The cheering and the entertainment they 
provide has been appreciated by both 
Timothy and the football team. Dr. Jerry 
Payne does an excellent job in directing 
the band. 

Wrestling team prepares 

But this is where I draw the line. When 
Bordelon attacked my panel and my 
football knowledge, that made the old 
blood boil. 

First of all, what does going to more 
football games than my guest predictors 
have to do with picking games. It is what's 
up in the old mind rather than in the i 
number of football games that you have West 
gone to. W as 1 

Next he wondered why in the history fetion < 
that a band member has never been picked L f or 
to serve on the panel. Mr. Bordelon .there Lj v 
you had me stumped J couldn't figure a t 
single reason why a band member hadf ■ 
never been picked, but after your letter IF' ; 
might be able to find a few. £ e m 

And last,when Bordelon said that Colwell pUarc 
had unquestionable competency , I I s at 
finally decided that you would never be fern, 
able to make the level of my pickers. Al ove 
blind old man could see that Colwell knows , ities 
absolutely nothing about football At lea! 
predicting. I will admit that the fir* 
couple of weeks he was very lucky. But if 
you will take a close luck at the records 
you will see that Colwell, since his lucky ^{f 7" 
week and eight game lead, is now tied ^ 
first with myself and the faculty. Need »Pna 
say more! J 38 00 

And last but certainly not least, u> el al v 
statement "I bet you Bordelon is 14 Te: 
as smart as you and probably 100 poufld/Jrevioi 
lighter.' was an obvious ploy by Colwell t°y s _ 
mess up my picks for last week. It ** p osinj 
quite evident that it didn't work as I poSJf" , ball 
a 11-4 record and Colwell was 8-7 for »« jttee 
second week in a row. M 

But whether or not Bordelon is 14 ttf*J idl 
smarter than I remains to be seen. There » 

one thing that I am certain though. Col* e ' ^ a 
wasn't wearing his glasses when he # 8 "y 
Bordelon because the president of the ban<|on. 
is 20 pounds heavier than me if he J* ! Won 
pound. So Phil you'll just have to cont^ t es t 
going to the games and forget aW ^ y 
making the panel. C'est la vie! fety c

Northwestern State University's 
wrestling club is working out now for their 
upcoming season in the spring. The club 
which has been together for only two years 
is trying to gain varsity recognition with 
the college. 

The team, which is coached by Gordon 
Coker of the Health, Physical Education 
and Recreation Department, is a young 
and growing club. Coker who coaches the 
team also is their faculty sponsor. 

Assisting Coker is Clayton Harrell who is 
probably the most experience of any in the 
club. Harrell, who has seen action for the 
last two years w ill be expected to help the 
young club with his experience. 

Other returning members of the club will 
be Joe Moreau and John O'Banion. Moreau, 
who is a senior, and O'Banion, who is a 
junior, are small, but have excellent 
quickness and determination. However, 
the Demons will need more than quickness 


J to P ' 
matc ne \ c 

and determination to win 
against heavier opponents. 

Joining those two will be two fresnjn 
David Begeron and Paul Seives. J 1 
Begeron and Seives could be the ad' 
muscle that the Demons need. 

The club which is extremely sro*" 
expecting a group of new prospects in 
spring to help build up their number^. 

"We will be smaller this year," 4 
Harrell, "But I hope that we can \-. 
pensate with our experience and spef^ 

"For those interested in wrestling a 
let the stuff you see on TV throw yo»' 
are collegiate wrestlers and it is far 
what they show on TV," continued H« r 

The Demons will have several exlli % 
matches later this month and invite

rts Editor Philip.after making a big surge in this week's 
, combined with the Faculty to catch a plummeting 
Colwell. Timothy, who tied with student picker Sam 
toorn for the best individual record ( 11-4), worked his way 
i third to a tie for first place with Colwell and the faculty, 
rell who for the second week in a row had an 8-7 record, 
ulty picker Ken Knotts posted a 9-6 record to bring the 
Jty into the first place tie. 

tnothy .Colwell, and the faculty pickers all had identical 

68-37 records. The students continue to dog everyone and are 
only one game behind with a 67-38 record. Never before in the 
history of the panel has it ever been as close as this. 

Along with the closeness of the race a controversy has also 
developed about Timothy's choice of guest selectors, (for 
more see Timothy's Looking at Sports) 

This week's guests are PEK president Joe Moreau and 
News Bureau director Jerry Pierce.

Ballard passes closer to Guidry 

almost nnnnfippH ^^^^W^p^^WWMW ViMMNH* 

It went almost unnoticed 
last Saturday night, but 
Northwestern State 
University quarterback Butch 
Ballard eclipsed an all-time 
pass completion career record 
in the Demons' 24-0 loss to 
Troy State. 

Ballard, a junior out of 
Bogalusa, completed seven of 
16 passes for 97 yards against 
Troy to give him 228 com- 
pletions in 406 attempts for 
2,618 yards in his career. 

The 228 completions shat- 
ters Northwestern's old school 
record of 221 set by Don 
Guidry from 1965 to 1968. 

Ballard ranks second to 
Guidry in virtually every 
other career passing record, 
but he should surpass 
Guidry's totals late this 
season or early next year. 

Thornton, moved up a notch 
on the all-time rushing list. 
Thornton gained only 17 yards 
rushing against Troy but it 
was enough to push him into 
fifth place on the all-time 
career rushing chart. 

Thornton has 1,544 rushing 
yards in his career including 
534 this season. He slipped 
past James McNew who 
compiled 1,536 yards in a 
career that spanned 1953 to 
1956. NSU's all-time rushing 
leader is Donald Johnson 
(1969-72) with 2,253 yards. 

Ballard's passing totals for 
the season are 75 completions 
in 134 attempts for 797 yards 
and three touchdowns. 

Freshman wide receiver 
Mike Almond continues to 
pace the Demons in catches 
with 20 grabs for 298 yards. 
Thornton is second with 18 
receptions for 142 yards and 
wide receiver Bo McCollister 
has 15 catches for 166 yards. 

The Demons travel to Lake 
Charles this Saturday for a 
date with McNeese State.

15-9 score. This was one of 
only two game losses the Lady 
Lions would have the duration 
of the tournament. 

The Lady Lions fought back 
hard to win the next two 
games, but the Lady Demons 
of NSU weren't going to give 
up without a fight. The second 
game of the match, went into 
overtime and the Lion's 
finally won the game 16-14 to 
tie the match at one game a 
piece. The third and final 
game of the match went all the 
way down to the wire, but 
Southeastern took it by the 
score of 15-13 

Behind Southeastern in the 
number two spot at the con- 
clusion of the tournament was 

the NSU-A team followed in 
third place by the Northeast 
squad. In fourth place was the 
B-team of NSU, who had never 
performed as unit until this 
tournament. In fifth place was 
Southern and in sixth Dillard. 

The Lions did not get away 
quite as easily as many 
thought after defeating NSU's 
A team. NSU'S B-team 
stepped in to try and revenge 
their sister unit's loss. The 
Lion's capture the first match 
15-12, but the second game 
didn't come quite as easy. 
Both teams traded points, but 
Southeastern pulled away at 
the last to take the game and 
the match.

Drama Tech 

Michael S. Corriston said 
this week that theatre 
technicians in Louisiana, 
Alabama and Mississippi are 
establishing a branch of the U. 
S. Institute of Theatre 
Technology in this section of 
the nation. 

Corriston, who is an 
assistant professor at Nor- 
thwestern and technical 
director for the NSU Theatre, 
said the newly-formed branch 
will be called the Delta Section 
of USITT. 

Meeting recently during the 
Louisiana College and 
University Theatre Festival in 
Baton Rouge, the group of 
theatre technicians elected 
Corriston as acting chairman 
of the Delta Section, which has 
applied to USITT for a section 
charter and permission to 
write its by-laws. 

"This is an international 
organization which promotes 
theatre technology and keeps 
its members informed of 
technological advances in 
theatre," said Corriston. "In 
just 10 years, USITT has 
become a strong and viable 
force in the theatre". 

The NSU technical director 
said students and faculty 
members at Northwestern are 
in the final stages of forming a 
USITT student chapter on the 
university campus. The 
Northwestern chapter will be 
the first student chapter 
established in Louisiana. 

Corriston said the Delta 
Section, once it receives its 
charter, will be able to present 
a variety of technical 
workshops throughout the 
state and in the southern parts

'Your image is on the line' 
every time you place or 
receive a telephone call, and 
the way you handle yourself 
impresses the caller either 
favorably or unfavorably. 

Have you ever considered 
that every time you use the 
telephone, the other party is 
drawing a mental picture of 
you? Most people will agree 
that an effective telephone 
personality helps make 
friends and creates good will. 
But how many have really 
analyzed their own voice and 
telephone habits? 

Although nearly everone 
knows how to use the 
telephone, many people still 
have bad telephone habits that 
could cause them to lose 
friends and create an un- 
desirable image of them- 
selves. You will be surprised 
to learn that most people have 
telephone personalities en- 
tirely different from their real 
selves. * 

Through the courtesy of 
South Central Bell Telephone 
Company, a one-hour 
program is being offered in 
good telephone usage. All 
hourly paid student workers 
are authorized to attend this 
one-hour program as one hour 

of their regular work 
schedule, according to Mrs. 
Ann L. McNeely, Director of 
Financial Aid. 

SouLi Central Bell 
Telephone Company has given 
special training to a group of 
Northwestern State 
University students serving as 
interns in the program. They 
will use the same technical 
equipment to train you as the 
company uses to train its 

employees and many business 
people. The ideas and skills 
you will learn will help you 
personally and professionally. 

The demonstrations on 
proper telephone courtesy are 
being presented by John 
Langford, Debbie Lee, 
Stewart O. Smith, and Jay 
Young, in room 309-F, Watson 
library at the hours listed

Special Ed renders services 

"The two main services rendered from the Special 
Education Department are diagnostic and instructional 
functions for teachers training," according to Dr. Curt 
Kinard, head of the NSU Special Education Department. 

Evaluations of exceptional children are conducted by 
diagnostic teams. These teams consist of a social worker who 
talks with the child's parents; a physiologist who evaluates 
the intellectual potentail of a child; an educational consultant 
who evaluates the educational achievement; and a speech 
and hearing specialist who checks the child's speech and 

After the evaluation of a child is made, the diagnostic team 
decides the case and makes a recommendation to the child's 
shool what should be done to help the exceptional child. 

Kinard defined an exceptional child— "any child who 
deviates from the norm socially, emotionally, physically, or 
intellectually to such an extent that the child requires a 
special program of education for the child to develop his 
maximum potential." He added that special "education is 
the education for the exceptional child." 

The children encountered in special education are men- 
tally retarded, emotionally disturbed, socially maladjusted, 
physically handicapped, have learning disabilities, have 
visual or hearing impairments or may be gifted or talented 

The teachers' training program offers master's degrees 
for graduates in the areas of mental retardation, emotional 
disturbances, physical handicaps, speech pathology, lear- 
ning disabilities, gifted or talented children. Kinard said, 
"By law in Louisiana, a teacher cannot be certified to teach 
exceptional children until he or she first becomes certified to 
teach normal children. Because of this law, there are no 
special education majors at the undergraduate level." The 
undergraduate may minor in special education and speech

"To acquire snakes, a cat, a 
printing press, and mid- 
Victorian furniture is one of 
the problems for the difficult 
production of "You Can't Take 
It With You," stated Bob Cox, 
Assistant Technical Director 
at the NSU Little Theatre. 

Cox, in partial fulfillment of 
the requirements for the 
degree of Master of Arts, is 
the designer and construction 
supervisor for the play that is 
scheduled to open on 
November 12. 

As a graduate of Nor- 
thwestern in Speech 
Education, Cox taught four 

years in the DeSoto Parish 
School System before at- 
tending Louisiana Tech. At 
Tech, Cox was involved in the 
production of West Side Story,

"The set (for 'You Can't

design in that it takes only the 
placing together of walls, and 
when it is decorated it will 
look like the living room of a

"You should know the type

It would not be a "thrilia in Manilla," 
but rather a "thrilla" at NSU, when 
Rare Earth appears in concert at the 
Prather Coliseum tomorrow night. 

Advocates of big name entertainment 
are specially favored since the Rare 
Earth is a well known "monster group" 
in the music scene. 

What makes the band so thick? Well, 
for one thing, records show that the 
group has recorded many chart- 
bursting singles and albums, and for 
another, they have performed before 
sell-out crowds in different parts of the 

The group recorded a 21 minute 
version of the Temptation's smash hit, 
"Get Ready" which worked its way to 
the top of the charts and even achieved 
a gold status. The band is probably 
more noted for hit songs like "Hey, Big 
Brother," "I Just Want to Celebrate," 
and "I'm Losing You," to name a few. 

Rare Earth's history dates back to 
1968 when the group was still a young 
club band from Detroit area. It grew 
under the influence of the predominant 
soul sound. The band began to make 
musical history when it broke away 
from the traditional "AM" music 

As a review had it, "Rare Earth took 

thcountry like an epidemic. Their 
st;, live as well as on records became 
synymous with good times and fun. 
Cuds enjoyed their 'boogie' a mix- 
tu of contemporary sound with the 
grving-growling-get-up-with-it beat." 

ley have performed before sell-out 
crrds in major festivals such as the 
Ciornia Jam, and the Atlanta Pop 

Dwever, rapid success and its 
sisequent demand took its toll on 
mnbers of the group. Some quit while 
sue stayed and for almost two years 
th remaining members with the help 
ofGil Bridges, the originator and 
leier of the band, tried to sign up new 
limbers. The group has weathered 
tb hard time and has come out 
stnding on "solid ground". Their 
last record "Back to Earth" will 
prve this fact, according to the review. 

"he concert is expected to begin at 8 
pn. and students will be admitted free 
oitheir BD's. Others will have to pay a 
$<fee at the door. 

Che concert will open with an act by 
tfc Earth, a local five-member group 
bsed in Baton Rouge. So, if you want to 
r6ax and get away from the books, try 
tobe at the Prather Coliseum because 
' tonorrow night promises a rare earth

Voting policy*hanges 

by Joani Rosenthal 

A new policy concerning campus 
elections will be put into use for the Mr. 
and Miss NSU and Winter Ball Court 
elections to be held Wed., Nov. 19 on the 
Northwestern campus. 

In trying new ways to combat the 
present student apathy in various 
campus activities, polls will be set up in 
Iberville Cafeteria as well as the usual 
booth on the 2nd floor of the Student 
Union Building. 

Voting machines will hopefully be in 
use, but it is doubtful because of the 
state election runoffs Dec. 13. Voting 
machines are stored for a set period of 
time before a state or national election. 
If they are not available, regulation 
ballots will be used. 

The polls will be open from 8 a. m. - 7 
p. m. in both areas. Meal ticket holders 
will be able to vote only in Iberville, 
with present meal ticket and I. D. Non- 
meal ticket holders will vote on the 2nd 

flof the S. U. with their I. D. This is 
thaly way to insure that students 
wrote once.

Play opens tomorrow 

by Randy Carter 

"One of the best American Comedies 
('You Can't Take It With You')," ex- 
plained Dr. E. Robert Black, director of 
the play, "is ready for tomorrow nights 
opening performance at 7:30 p. m. at 
the NSU Little Theatre. 

Dr. Black, Department Head of 
Speech and Journalism at NSU, also 
stated that the cast is working very 
hard to create genuine personalities on 
stage which are different from the 
actors' own personalities. 

The actors are rehearsing "to solve 

the difficult problems of comic 

technique and timing. When this is 

learned then the actor can make his 

actions look real. It must appear as if 

the action is really happening to real 

people," said Dr. Black. 

The cast, in the beginning rehearsals, 
pracucea m vucwrwans mosi or ine 

time because the stage was used for 

other NSU activities. This, however, 

did not interfere with the rehearsal 

schedule and presently everything is 

running smoothly. 

"There will be many crazy things 
happening on stage and the audience 
will be pleasantly surprised," stated 
Dr. Black. 

Dr. Black added, "We are offering 

this play to all the students at NSU who 
haven't seen the styles of the 1930's." 
Also the play is for the faculty, "just for 
the nostalgia of it all." 

Come and see it because, 'art is for 
man's sake.' 

"You Can't Take It With You," runs 
through Saturday, Nov. 15. Tickets for 
reserved seats are on sale at the NSU 
Little Theatre box office from 1 till 5 on 
weekdays. Come by or call for your 
reservations at 357-6196. Remember all 
NSU students with I. D.'s can get in 
free. General admission is $1.50; non- 
NSU students are 75 cents; faculty and 
members of their family are 50 cents. 

The technical director for the 
Kaufman and Hart classic is Michael S. 
Corriston, assistant professor of 
speech. The set designer is graduate 
student Bob Cox. Alecia Alexander is

Beauties attend LOB 

The current Miss U. S. Teen and nine 
other beauty queens have accepted 
invitations to appear Nov. 18 at Nor- 
thwestern State University's Lady of 
the Bracelet beauty pageant. 

The formal pageant, which is 
scheduled for the Fine Arts Auditorium 
on the NSU campus at 8 p.m., is an 
official preliminary to the Miss 
Louisiana and Miss America contests.

university queens who finished in the 
top 10 at the Miss Louisiana beauty 
pageant in Monroe. They are Joan 
Marie Burt, Miss Louisiana Tech; 
Karen Miller, Miss Northeast 
Louisiana, and Donna Holt, Miss 
Louisiana College. 

Miss Holt was the third runner-up and 
talent winner at the Miss Louisiana 
pageant. For the Northwestern 
pageant, Miss Louisiana College will

The Way I See It 



1 1 

Since I have been informed 
that no one reads my 
editorials anyway, I have 
decided not to write about the 
usual subjects: SBA, the 
SUGB, or Current Sauce. I'm 
going to write about what I 
want to write about— walking 
and bicycling and making 
Christmas presents for people 
without spending a fortune, 
and plants. If you choose, you 
don't have to read this one 

Sometimes it seems like 
these are the only kinds of 
things that have any lasting 
importance. Most oeople 
worry about money and 
grades and cars and clothes, 
things that are here for today 
only— nut aesthetic or caring 
things, just matter, material. 

Those things, cars, clothes, 
and money, very few can live 
without, ("How can you live 
without working and having 
money to spend?"), but who 
can really live without the 
other things, things that 
nourish the soul and spirit? 

Okay, back to the topics at 
hand. . 

Natchitoches is a small 
enough town that walking 
everywhere is feasible. To go 
most places— on foot— doesn't 
take more than about half and 

This time of year, the 
weather is just right for 
walking at anytime of the 
day. Just think of the cutback 
we would have to the traffic 
problem if people would leave 
ten or fifteen minutes early 
and walk. 

If you are interested at all in 
historic Natchitoches, there's a 
walking tour brochure. It's a 
great thing for someone to do 
while his clothes are washing 
on Saturday. 

In our speeded up society, a

lot of people have trouble 
slowing down to a walking 
speed; their metabolism is set 
at a quicker rate. But this 
doesn't mean they have to 
drive a car. It's remarkable 
how many bicycles there are 
parked on campus that are 
hardly used. The bicycle racks 
and lamp posts at Sabine are 
full with every kind of bicycles 
you could imagine, most of 
which were brought to NSU by 
Mom and Dad at the beginning 
of the semester and haven't 
been moved since. If you've 
got to get places faster than on 
foot, try a bicycle. Average 
time to ride from campus to 
the other side of town is a 
maximum of fifteen minutes. 

I'll go to plants next and 
come back to Christmas 

It doesn't take a green 
thumb to grow plants, and if 
you want to make a room 
more pleasant, this is a good 
way. You don't need fancy 
planters or expensive potting 
soil or even to go buy the 
plants. Almost everyone 
knows at least one person who 
already has some plants in the 
room or home. Using a cutting 
from another plant is an easy 
and inexpensive way to start a 
beautiful plant. It only takes 
two leaves, placed in a glass of 
water until the cutting grows 
roots, and then a small con- 
tainer of soil, in which to plant 
the cutting, and you're on your 
way to beautiful pot of ivy or 
some other house plant. 

The same can be done with 
African Violets which won't 
even require sunlight 
(flourescent lamps do great). 
They'll need a little more 
plant food to keep them 

There are very few college 
students who can afford to go 

out and buy nice (expensive) 
Christmas gifts for all their 
family and friends. Some 
students thought ahead, or 
maybe just "lucked out," and 
are in classes where they 
actually make articles... which 
can be used for gifts. Art 
majors have it made with 
pottery classes and learning 
macrame and other arty 
things (in fact some art 
students will be selling some 
of their works the first week of 
December for very reasonable 
prices) . But some of the things 
they learn to make in class, 
you can get from a book. 

Hardly any students even 
think to look in the library for 
"make and do" ideas. The 
public library, besides the 
university library, carries 
books on everything form 
woodcrafts to embroidery. 

And if you are really am- 
bitious and have access to a 
stove, cook up a present. 
Breads and sweets are 
inexpensive to give as 
presents and always ap- 
preciated, even if the receiver 
says he's on a diet. 

This "editorial" may be a 
bit disjointed, but the mind 
dosen't always run along 
conventional lines. The whole 
point is that doing things for 
other people (even just small 
gifts at Christmas), and doing 
things for yourself (whether it 
be growing plants or just 
getting away from pressures 
by taking a daily walk) are 
very important for a well- 
rounded, "happy with your- 
self' type person. Things that 
boost the spirit can't be lived 
without for very long, so 
maybe you might remember 
to do the French's mustard bit 
("spread a little sunshine") 
when you are around your 
friends. It will help you both.

A column of persaal comments by NSU Campus Ministers (This weeks 
column, is by Jh Collie, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church.) 


Terror. It's become le by- 
word of our lives. I eturn 
from an out-of-town to and 
the first thing I'm toldr'Two 
NSU women students were 
beaten in an atteipted 
assault and several ithers 
were terrorized." Durig this 
last week a woman were I 
work has be reciving 
threatening telephone alls- 
threats toward herself aid her 
children— and she lives a life 
of terror. 

A friend of mine has been 
sleeping at the apart nent of 
two girls he knows; lomeone 
has been rattling tie doors 
and looking in the winiows for 
the last several night. 

Locally, just in tie past 
several weeks, an elderly 
service station attenduit was 
beaten by two young men. I 
was in the emergency room 
when he was brought in. He 
lay very still on the stetcher, 
to move would have invited 
aWaapBauiy MJ9f£ 
stained his shirt. 

A retired couple living 
outside of town was beaten 
and robbed late one night. 
Someone had found out they 
kept a large quantity d cash 
in the house. 

Bombs are set off in lublic 
streets in London. Bancs in 
three different urban ares in 
the United States are bonbed 

in an apparently co-ordinated 
event. A high school student 
slips over the edge and kills 
several with sniper fire. Then 
he hangs himself in a jail cell. 

We respond in revulsion and 
questioning. Why? What kind 
of sense can be made? How 
does this kind of evil and chaos 
spill over into this world 
striking at harmless and in- 
nocent people? How are we to 
understand the tragedy, the 

live in our midst? 

Evil and tragedy, terror and 
malice do seriously call into 
question our understanding of 
the world. Those of us raised 
in Christian traditions find 
ourselves in an especially 
diff icult dilemma: we wish to 
affirm the goodness of God 
and of his creation and at the 
same time fully understand 

the life we live which has so 
many unexplained tragic 

To say that God wills some 
destructive event to punish us, 
or to test us, is to dangerously 
misrepresent God. In our 
seeking to console ourselves 
very often we paint God the 
villian. After the untimely 
death of his five-year old 
daughter a friend told me that 
God was punishing him for 
some sin. Wrong. God does not 
kill children ! Or old people. Or 
men and women. God does not 
send terror into our dor- 
mitories or our lives. 

We struggle to understand 
the presence of evil in a good 
world. It does cut off for many 
people the possibility of a good 
life. It does call into question 
the power and goodness of 

We know in some respects 
how it happens. Through the 
working of natural forces in 

c^f^rt ^^ ^? 
through the injustice of social 

But we do affirm that evil is 
God's enemy as well as ours. 
In Christ he shared our agony 
over it.He works continually to 
overcome it. The last word 
will be God's "Good". This 
gives us courage to endure 
evil, to learn from it, and 
combat it.

With an emphasis on the

Northwestern's basketball

playing good sound defense," 

The upsets were the big stories in the prediction panel this 
week. With both Oklahoma and USC fooling around and 
letting weaker teams beat them, the Panel was thrown into 
an uproar. Sports Editor Philip Timothy was heard to say 
"Why those &? $&! :$!!". But all together there were seven 
major upsets across the country. 

With the upsets in the panel, Steve Colwell and guest sele- 
ctor Jerry Pierce tied for the best records. Both had identical 
114 marks. Timothy and student picker Joe Moreau also tied 
with identical 10-5 marks. 

Both Colwell and the faculty pickers remain locked in a 
deadlock for that number one spot with 79-41 records. 
Timothy has now dropped to second place only one game 

'try their luck' 


away from the leaders with a 78-42 mark. The students still 
hold down last place with their 7743 showing. They are only 
two games out of first. 

It has been reported that this weeks guest are expected to 
completely take over the lead in the panel. However, 
Timothy expects that the exact opposite should occur. After 
seeing the guests picks for this week Timothy went into 
uncontrollable laughter for nearly an hour. 

So with the ninth week of football safely behind us, it is time 
to get down to the real business at hand. And that is, of 
course, Timothy's winning of this panel. So this week's guest 
are Joani Rosenthal and Tommy Whitehead.

have as many penalties as we 
had called against us last 
night," said Williams, "Had 
we been playing dirty or if we 
had lost our composure then I 
could have seen just cause for 
the number of penalties. As it 
was the referees were looking 
for reasons to throw their 

"When Mike Maggio 
dropped their running back 
for the big loss on fourth and 
two, the referee said that our 
nose guard was offsides," 
continued Williams, "But they 
did not say his body, hand, or 
head was off sides, no rather, 
they said that his face mask 
was off sides." 

And that was how it went for 
the Demons for the rest of the 
night. The Demons were 
penalized 15 times for 124 

However, it was Nor- 
thwestern's junior quar- 
terback, Butch Ballard, that 
completely stole the spotlight. 
Ballard complete 13 of 22 for 

165 yards and one touchdown. 
But Ballard's performance 
was super because the whole 
night the junior was dodging 
Cowboy rushers. 

"We did have breakdowns in 
our pass protection," said 
Williams, "They were able to 
get their outside and middle 
linebackers in too easy." 

That was quite evident most 
of the night as Ballard was 
sacked nine times. And even 
when he was not sacked he 
was being pressured con- 
stantly by the Cowboy pass 

"Butch has a lot of guts," 
said wide receiver Rudy 
Hines, "I know that I was 
opened all night on my pass 
routes, but Butch was either 
already on the ground or 
scrambling for his life." 

Ballard did manage to elude 
the Cowboy's pass rush long 
enough to connect with wide 
receiver Wyamond Waters for 
a 27-yard scoring strike. 
Waters outraced his defender 

and made a beautiful fingertip 
grab in the back of the end 
zone for the Demons first 

But the constant pounding 
had taken its toll on Ballard. 
After his 27 yard bomb to 
Waters, Ballard passed out as 
he came off the field. Demon 
trainer Eugene Christmas 
said, "Butch was running a 
high fever and when he came 
off the field he was completely 
exhausted. Ballard spent the 
rest of the fourth quarter on 
his back and part of it under 
an oxygen mask. 

"The loss of Ballard really 
hurt us," said Williams, "He 
had a hot hand when he scored 
and had been driving the team 
well. He certainly could have 
meant a lot to us in tha fourth 

Early in the fourth quarter 
an aroused Demon defense 
began to stop the Cowboys.Pat 

Douget stepped in front of 
Johnnie Thibodeaux pass and 
raced into the end zone. 
Suddenly it was 24-14 Mc- 

However, without Ballard 
the Demon's offense could not 
get cranked up. The Cowboys 
tacked on a final touchdown to 
make the score 31-14. 

"Our defense still needs a 
lot of work," said Williams, 
"We are giving up too many 
points and too many yards." 

"I was real proud of the 
boys Saturday night," said 
Williams, "We were down by 
24 points and they could have 
quut, but instead they fought 
back to within 10 of the 
Cowboys. They showed a lot of 
character Saturday night." 

We are going to have to be 
ready for USL next week. 
They are big, strong, and 
much better than last year." 

NOT AGAIN! — Bill Moseley (42) 
and another Cowboy defender are 
shown ready to put the pads to 
Demon quarterback Butch Ballard. 
Ballard who was sacked nine times 
for the night still managed to 



yards and a touchdown. The junior 
signal caller had to leave the game 
in the third quarter and saw no 
further action for the night.

Persistent Frank Trammel, 
a tireless 5-foot-6, 123-pound 
senior, set a new course 
record Thursday while 
leading Northwestern to a 
dual meet cross country 
victory over Northeast 
Louisiana University. 

Trammel, a product of New 
Orleans-Kennedy, toured the 
hilly, six-mile paved course in 
24:04.78tosmashthe old mark 
of 24: 14.00 set by NSU's David 
McLeod in 1972. 

SIGN OF VICTORY— Frank Trammel flashes the 
victory sign as he crosses the finish line in a dual 
cross country meet with Northeast. Trammel ran 
the hilly six mile course in 24:04.78 to smash the 
old mark of 24:14.00 set by NSU's David McLeod 
in 1972. 

Northwestern was forced to 
run without the services of No. 
2 man Leo Gatson, who had to 
take a laboratory test in one of 
his courses. The Demons still 
managed to take 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 
4th and 8th places for a win- 
ning score of 18 points. 

Following Trammel across 
the finish line were senior 
Randy Moore (25:43.57) of 
Shreveport-Captain Shreve, 
sophomore Paul Buitron 
(26:03.12) of Corpus Christi, 
Tex. and freshman Mike Pline 
(26:30.56) of Huntsville, Ala. 

Northeast, which entered 
only four runners, did not have 
a team score since the Indians 
didn't finish the required five 
competitors. Another NLU 
runner had to miss the meet 
because he's performing in 
the NCAA regional in South 

Jimmy Edwards was 
Northeast's top finisher. 
Edwards was clocked in 
26:47.91 for fifth place. 

Rounding out the top nine 
individual finishers were Dan 
Hertling, NLU, 6th; Edward 
Rios, NLU, 7th; David 
Sheppard, NSU, 8th; and 
Dwayne Young, NLU, 9th. 

Trammel and Northwestern 
will travel to Salina, Kan. a 
week from Saturday for the 
NAIA National Cham- 
pionships in cross country. 
Last year Trammel earned 
NAIA All-American honors. 

Collins' best is yet to come 

Wyamond Waters, Nor- 
th western's potentially super 
wide receiver out of Dallas, 
Tex., broke a school single 
season record Saturday night 
against McNeese State and 
he's got his sights set on many 
more during his next three 

A 6-foot-l, 175-pound fresh- 
man speedster, Waters has 
already run back 23 kickoffs 
this season for 420 yards — an 
18.2 average per return. The 
23 runbacks breaks the old 
mark of 21 set by Mario Cage 
in 1974. 

Waters is also in easy range 
of the record 503 yards in 
kickoff returns set by Al 
Phillips in 1970. Northwestern 
has two games remaining for 
Waters to eclipse that mark. 

If he continues at his present 
pace, Waters will break 
virtually every kickoff return 
record at Northwestern. But 
Waters is also threatening at 
least one other school record 
in pass receiving. 

He's currently averaging a 
spectacular 28.1 yards per 
reception with 13 catches for 
366 yards and three touch- 
downs, including a 27-yard TD 
catch in the Demons 31-14 loss 
to McNeese State Saturday 
night at Lake Charles. 

The single season record for 
best average gain per catch is 
26.5 set by Billy Booth in 1957. 
Booth had 12 receptions for 318 

"Wyamond has plenty of 
ability," NSU Coach A. L. 
Williams says. "He's like 
many of our other freshmen 
though in that he needs to 
strive for consistency." 

Junior quarterback Butch 
Ballard of Bogalusa continues 
his impressive passing 
statistics after nine games. 
Ballard has completed 57 
percent of his tosses ( 89 of 156) 
for 962 yards and four TD's. 

However, Ballard would 

really have to get hot in his 
last two games to equal his 
passing totals of last season 
when he ea-ned All-Louisiana 
honors. In 1974 Ballard 140 of 
245 passers (57.1 percent) for 
1,668 yards and three TD's.

about his blocking before the

It's a good thing Collins 
turned out to be better than 
NSU coaches hoped he would 

because the Demons didn't 
have any experienced tight

"Pat actually came in a lot

we think he'll pick up strength

The Baha'is of Nor- 
thwestern State University 
and Natchitoches will 
celebrate the anniversary of 
the birth of Baha'u'llah, one of 
the principle events of the 
year Wed., Nov. 12. The 
celebration will be held 2 p. 
m.-5 p. m. at 220 Trudeau St. 
The event will be informal and 
the public is invited to stop by 
for refreshments and in- 
formation about the Baha'i 

The principle goal of the 
Baha'i Faith, which was 
founded in Persia in the latter 
half of the 19th century, is the 
unification of mankind. 
Baha'u'llah, the founder of the 
Baha'i Faith whose name 
means "The Glory of God," 
was imprisoned for many 
years for his religious 
teachings. The teachings 
stress the need for social 
reform as well as a spiritual 
regeneration. Baha'is believe 
in the oneness of mankind, in 
the need for a world-federated 
system of government, in the 
elimination of all forms of 
prejudice in human in- 
teraction, and in the equality 
of men and women. 

The Baha'i Club, a char- 
tered campus club, is open to 
all NSU students, faculty, and 
alumni regardless of religious 
affiliation. The next meeting 
is today at 7 p. m. in Room 314 
of the Student Union. The 
Baha'i Community holds a 
weekly meeting on Thursdays 
at 7 p. m. for persons wishing 
to investigate the Baha'i

Kilpatrick honored 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick was 
presented the International Arabian 
Horse Association's Directors Award 
Saturday to highlight the 26th annual 
IAHA Convention in New Orleans. 

Through Kilpatrick's efforts, a new 
equine science program, using Arabian 
horses , was established here this fall to 
broaden the university's livestock 
operations program. 

In addition, Northwestern awarded a 
four-year scholarship to 17-year-old Lee 
Bennett of Allamuchy, N. J., who was 
the high point individual winner of the 
Arabian Horse Youth Team Judging 
Contest at last month's Arabian and 
Half-Arabian U. S. National Cham- 
pionship Horse Show in Albuquerque, 
N. M. 

As one of three recipients of this 
year's Directors Award, Kilpatrick was 
presented an Arabian horse finely 
crafted in gold on a handsome silver 

belt buckle. 

"During these 26 years, the IAHA has 
grown and prospered in its objectives of 
promoting, encouraging and 
stimulating interest in the Arabian 
horse and the perpetuation of the 
breed," said McArthur. "IAHA's 
success can be credited to individuals 
like Dr. Kilpatrick who have given of 
their time, energies and talent in many 
programs considered to be in the best 
interest of the Arabian breed." 
Northwestern established its equine 
science program this fall by acquiring 
eight Arabian horses as the nucleus for 

stallions make up the Arabian horse 
unit, which will be used to teach 
breeding, showing, halter breaking, 
general horsemanship, daily care and 
breeding organization as well as for 
research in equine nutrition, 
reproduction and blood typing.

Northwestern State University and 
the city of Natchitoches will combine 
Saturday, Dec. 6 to host the 49th annual 
Natchitoches Christmas Festival. 

Festival co-chairmen, Richard Ware 
and Mrs. Dell Morgan said they expect 
approximately 100,000 persons to attend 
the activities Friday night and 

Theme for this year's festival is "A 
Christmas in Wonderland." Floats in 
the parade Saturday and painted 
windows on the NSU Student Union 
Building will depict the theme. 

As usual, the parade will have a 
grand marshal. In charge from past 
years, the festival committee selected a 
worthy Natchitoches citizen. This year 
Charles P. Solomon, has been selected 
as the grand marshal instead of a 
celebrity from out of town. 

Solomon has been responsible for 
adding more lights and set pieces on the 
riverbank over the years. Over 175,000 
tiny bulbs brighten the skyline of 
Natchitoches around Christmas time 
each year. 

The lighting program covers ap-

Burgdorf, then superintendent or 
utilities for the City of Natchitoches. 
Burgdorf decided that the city needed 
an expression of Christmas feeling. 

A street and riverbank lighting 
program was inititated to send 
Christmas greetings from Natchitoches 
with warmth and beauty. The program 
met with approval from local 
businessmen and they supported the 
idea 100 percent. 

The large star in the East was part of 
the first lighting program. In 1927 
Burgdorf built the star about eight feet 
across. Today the star has been ex- 
panded to 21 feet wide and it helps 
decorate one of the most elaborate 
Christmas sights in the nation. 

The fireworks display, which plays a 
major role in the Christmas Festival 
Program, was started in 1936. Allen C. 
Cox and Sam West originated the idea 
and approached businessmen for 

Once again the Natchitoches mer- 
chants enthusiastically supported the 
program. The first display was valued 
at $300. Today more than $4,000 is spent 
for the fireworks program,

The Way I See It

Pass the eagle, please! 

Pity, we must, the poor 
turkey: synonym for a first- 
class flop. A frump. To talk 
turkey bodes bad. To quit, cold 

Every time there is a 
concert, a play production, an 
art showing, or a recital, 
someone asks who Current 
Sauce is sending to review the 
concert, play, art showing, or 
recital. Sometimes we've 
drawn names out of a hat, but 
most of the time we try to 
avoid the subject or whoever 
makes the mistake of telling 
anyone that he is going to one 
of these events gets stuck with 
the assignment. 

It's not that reporters and 
staff members of Current 
Sauce are not patrons of the 

arts, it's just that no one feels 
qualified to review any of 
these events in an authoriative 
manner. Rock concerts are 
easier, but what's great to one 
person, may be "lousy" to 

Actually, you'll probably 
find a larger percentage of the 
newspaper staff at any par- 
ticular event than any other 
campus group. Just the other 
night at the opening of "You 
Can't Take It With You," fifty 
percent of the staff was there. 
(The others went on other 
nights. ) But to review the play 

is another matter all together. 

Almost all of us have written 
at least one "review" of some 
sort. But most of the time it 
has been under pressure. 
There are some of us who 
understand the amount of 
work that goes into any kind of 
art form, but we're too nice to 
say anything bad about any 

Anyway, on the whole, even 
though we aren't going to 
review "You Can Take It With 
You," the general concensus 
of the staff is that it was very 
good and we all enjoyed it.

very lousy.

It's got to be folly to argue 
with Benjamin Franklin— but 
someone must have since the 
eagle emerged as Big Bird

Lordy knows a turkey needs 
all the friends he can get. A 
gobbler on the hoof is a goofy,

In the wild state he thinks of

How come?— A concert question 

How come the radio station 
can book five bands (count 
them, five), to play for an all- 
evening and half the night 
type affair and the Student 
Union Governing Board who is 
supposed to provide our 
concerts comes up with a show 
called "Up With People?" At 
least the radio station crew 
was able to make it's own 
decisions ... no one on the Big 
Name Entertainment Com- 
mittee will admit to sub- 
mitting "Up With People" for 
consideration for the 
Christmas Lights concert. 

The KNWD fling will be 
Friday night, Dec. 5, the day 
before the Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival. The "Up 
With People" concert is 
scheduled for Saturday night 
following the lighting 

The KNWD concert is being 
financed by the sale of KNWD 
T-shirts (also to be used in- 
stead of tickets to get in the 
concert). The SUGB Christ- 
mas Lights Concert is being

Though I hate to bring it up, 
the radio station concert will 
probably be better attended. 
G-rated concerts for college 
students went out with that 
age group's rejection of

No newspaper ever had it so 
good and so bad at the same 
time. Current Sauce must be 
on every mailing list main-

Government and the State of 
Louisiana. We receive weekly 
releases from the Louisiana 
Tourism people, the Becen-

sometimes the Governor's

newsletters from Washington, 
the Lung Association, en- 
vironmental groups, and even

of Edward Kennedy's recent 
speeches before the Senate, 
and newspapers from about a 
dozen colleges, both in and 
outside of the state, and at 
least that many Louisiana 
high schools. 

We rarely get anything that 
is pertaining to Northwestern. 

Dozens of offices on cam- 
pus, organizations and 
campus-associated groups 
send out information weekly 
and monthly, or at least a 
couple of times a year. 
Current Sauce never sees 
most of it (unless one of the 
staff members happens upon 
it through some other means 
than the mail — last week we 
got the news of a new 
scholarship for Greek women 
from a bulletin board). We 
don't ever see the various 
bulletins distributed by the 

religious groups affiliated 
with the university or even the 
alumni magazine. 

We are deluged with in- 
formation — most of which 
doesn't even closely deal with 
the college community (what 
we find ourselves dealing with 
as our main subject matter for 
Current Sauce.) 

But we are the last possible 
recipients of facts Current 
Sauce SHOULD disseminate 
to the students.

has a mailing list used for 
sending out any type of in-

Shopping in Natchitoches is 
far from the easiest place to 
go to buy gifts. If you were at

A column of personal comments by NSU campus Ministers. (This 
week's column is by Miss Myra Gulledge, director of the Baptist Student 

A remarkable friend of mine 
is ill. It came as a great shock 
to many of us because for 
years she had poured out 
herself for others. Almost 
Jnjm the moment the word 
went out, my telephone 
started to ring. Over and over 
the callers expressed the idea 
that they couldn't believe my 
friend was "under-the- 
weather." She was always the 
one of strength who never 
complained of being ill. She 
was the one God had smiled 
upon with her three-score and 
ten plus. It was not un- 
believable to me when the 
physician announced she had 
the spirit and the physical 
attributes of a fifty-year-old. 
Therefore, through this 
traumatic experience came a 
reminder from the past. 

A long time ago when I was 
your age, an unbelievable 
little book was handed to me. 
It was a book by David Dunn 
called Try Giving Yourself 
Away. It, along with the 
teachings of the "Sermon on 
the Mount," literally changed 
my life. 

For some reason, with the 
ill ness of my friend, the book 

reentered my thinking. It 
seems doubtful that my friend 
ever read the book by Dunn, 
but she knew well the author 
of the "Sermon on the Mount" 
and she certainly translated 
well the spirit of the author by 
example. Because of Him, she 
had learned so well how to 
give herself away. 

How many times in the 37 
years, to be exact, had she 
poured out herself visiting the 
sick, telephoning a shut-in, 
cooking family-night suppers 
for her church, or feeding 
nungry college students? How 
often did Christ give himself 
away— healing the sick, 

raising the dead, feeding the 
hungry and setting the 

Likewise, that brings to 
mind a thought— have you 
thought about "ways of giving 
yourself away?" Now, that's a 
whole new ballgame. Ac- 
tually, from my perspective, 
my friend lived for others 
proficiently. The beautiful 
part of this experience came 
that while giving she had 
received. God had blessed her 
with vim, vigor and body of a 
fifty-year-old. Finally, look 
again at the illustration in this 
story. It would seem evident 
that giving and receiving 
becomes a two-way street and 
together one gets a vivid 
picture of what Francis of 
Assisi was saying when he so 
beautifully wrote, "It is in 
giving one receives. It is in 
dying that one lives for eternal 

Therefore, consider these 
ideals in selecting a gratifying 
life-style of giver-receiver. It 
is a statisfying style per- 
sonally, a redeeming style 
socially and an atoning divine

Dear ttditor: 

I am writing in concern of 
the article printed in tht last 
issue of the Current Cu-rent 
Sauce, entitled: Ibeiville 
offers variety of meals. Iam a 
Senior this year and hav> had 
a meal ticket ever siice I 
started school here in 197! as a 
freshman. The food situation 
has not improved at all snce I 
have been going to this sthool. 
It seems to me that we have 
the same type of meals: very 
day. Why is it that we annot 
have baked potatoes oce or 
twice a week, etc? The teaks 
that we have on Saturdy, by 
the time some of thei are 
cooked, are so raw andtough 
to eat that we can't evn cut 
them with a knife. I thix that 

this is a disgrace. I could go 
out and buy a decent meal for 
just a few cents more. But 
they won't let us because we 
have to have a meal ticket, 
according to housing. At least 
my dog gets ALPO 100 percent 
beef not a speak of cereal. The 
food here has gotten worse 
and worse and it doesn't seem 
to be getting any better. I 
surely wish that something 
could be done to the food 
situations so that at least we 
get a couple of meals that are 
worth eating. Thank you for 
your attention on this matter, 
and I hope that something can 
be worked out. 

A concerned student 
Name withheld by request 
(Editor's note: To my un- 

derstanding, Seniors are not 
required to purchase a meal 
ticket. You might check into 
that. Also, you'll have to 
understand some points about 
our cafeteria situation. 
Iberville, I suppose, has to 
function the only way it can to 
feed the number it does. 

The way it functions, 
however, tends to lend itself to 
the institutional food syn- 
drome (lots of starches, 
breaded and extended-by- 
cereal meats and sometimes 
little, if any, seasoning). 
You've heard all your life 
about food in the military, 
well, the company that is now 
running Iberville is the same 
one that operates the food 
services for several local mil- 

itary installations. That 

should be a hint. 
As far as the "forced 

feeding"— in other words, 
having to buy a meal ticket- 
is concerned, students gone 
round and round with the 
administration on that one 
point semester after 
semester. Students, I'm 
afraid, are given a deaf ear on 
the matter. I think that the 
administration knows that 
most students are not satisfied 
with the food they get, but to 
change the statis quo even a 
little is likely to be regarded 
as opening a can of worms. 

It was thought last year that 
a 5 -day and 7-day meal ticket 
option would be offered 
beginning this semester. As

/ CS Pigskin Prediction Panel 


With the last week of the regular college football season 
upon us, Steve Colwell has finally admitted how he has been 
able to lead the panel all season. 

"Well, it was very simple," said Colwell, "I just got Joani 
Rosenthal to pick the games for me." 

A flabbergasted Philip Timothy asked Rosenthal if this 
was true and she responded that it was. 

"Rosenthal has been making my picks ever since the week 
she picked all 15 of those games correct for me," continued 

Timothy is now trying to start impeachment proceedings 
against both Colwell and Rosenthal. Timothy swears he will 




get even. 

Colwell with the aid of Rosenthal came up with a 12-3 
record followed closely by Rosenthal's 10-5 performance. 
Timothy had a rough time this week and could post only a 9-6 
mark. The faculty pickers had a real disastrous week as they 
posted a 7-8 record. 

Colwell still leads the panel with a 91-44 overall mark. He is 
followed closely by Timothy and the student pickers with 
identical 87-48 records. The faculty pickers are last with 86-49 
overall marks. 

This weeks guests are Doug Bell and Ramon Brodermann.

In 40-17 loss to USL 

'Mistakes cost Demons 

By Philip Timothy 

In Saturday night's 40-17 loss to USL, 
Northwestern once again failed to play 
a complete game. The Demons, who 
are now 1-9 on the season, appear to be 
on their way to another 1-10 season. 

"We played well in spots," said 
Demon head coach A. L. Williams, 
"But once again we were unable to play 
a full game. Every time we started to 
move the ball, we either fumbled or 
made a mistake that turned the ball 

"You can't win a ball game if you 
don't play the entire game," continued 

The Demons proved that Saturday 
night. However, NSU did hav» « 
bright spots in an otherwis 
night. Fullback Sidney "Tl 
Bull" Thornton was a one mai 
Northwestern during the nigh 
fullback led all rushers with 
on 19 carries, scored two tc 
and completed one pass for 

On the first play f rom scrim 
NSU, Thornton busted into th 
secondary and was off and 
Thornton galloped 64 yards I 
was caught from behind on 
yard line. 

"I guess that I just ran out o. 
said Thornton, "I tell you my t 
awful heavy toward the last.' 

The Demons, however, could not get 
it in and a Dennis Pender graft field 
goal sailed wide and to the right. For 
the rest of the first period the team 
traded the ball back and forth and at 
the end of the first half. It was 0-0. 

It didn't stay 0-0 for long. Roy 
Williams got things going for the 
Cajuns as he gathered in a Stuart 
Wright punt and raced 69-yards down 
the sidelines for a score. This was only 
one of three touchdowns USL scored in 
the second quarter. 

After the Cajuns scored their second 
touchdown, reserve quarterback 
Wright came in for a listless Butch 
Ballard. The junior from Natchitoches 
~emons rolling as he 
1-play, 78 yard drive, 
drive as he drove in 
d line. At this point 
s down only by a 

nd quarter, after the 
id their third touch- 
ce again got things 
:onds left in the half, 
an Rudy Hines with a 
nes made a beautiful 
he USL 36 yard line. 

1 get a break as USL 
ing the face mask on 
laity moved the ball 
21-yard line. Wright 

then hit Freshman Wyamond Wat 
for 15-yards to the six yard line, 
one second left Pendergraf t kicked a \ 
yard field goal. At the half it was 
in favor of USL. 

The straw that broke the Demo 
back was the third quarter. NSU hp 
been moving the ball at the end of 
second quarter, but disaster stm M* 
quickly in the third quarter. Tp 
Demons, who had been sure handed! / 
the first half, suddenly began to pi 
hot potato with the football. Altogeth 
NSU coughed up the ball three tim 
and had a snap from center sent out 
the end zone for a safety. By the tin 
end of the third quarter USL 
jumped ahead to 33-10. 

With the score 40-10 and time 
out, Wright got the offense 
again. Starting from his own 40 
line and with the aid of two big 
interference penalties, Wright 
guided NSU to another score. 
Thornton capped the drive with 
second one yard plunge and 
dergraft added the PAT to make 

"We beat ourselves," said Wi 
"You can not expect to make that ma 
mistakes and win. We pi 
Southeastern next week and they tf 
advantage of people's mistakes, 
can't afford to make any if we e: 
beat them." 



ikes Sidney Go 

I ROUGH GOING! — Sidney Thornton fights his 
way through several USL defenders for some 
toughyards in last Saturday's 40-17 loss. Thornton 

I was a one man work horse for the Demons as he 
gained 129 yards onl9 carries, scored two touch- 
downs and threw oie pass for 13 yards. 

If you've got the answer

State University Athletic 

Thornton, NSU's 5-foot-10, 
223-pound junior running 
back, was operating at full 
speed last Saturday night in 
the Demons' 40-17 loss to the 
University of Southwestern 

He promptly turned in one of 
the best performances of his 
career, rushing 19 times for 
129 yards and two touchdowns 
and completing a pass for 13 
yards. His effort came after a 
couple of sub-par games for 
him this season. 

Thornton was utilized at 
fullback and tailback against 
Southwestern. The longest run 
of his career, a 64-yarder, 
came on the first play from 
scrimmage for NSU while 
Thornton was a tailback. 

NSU Coach A. L. Williams 
said Thornton would not start 
at quarterback against 
Southeastern Louisiana 
University this week although 
Thornton's pass completion 
percentage is perfect (2 for 2). 

Thornton now has 700 yards 
on 164 carries this season for a 
4.2 average per attempt. He's 
scored five touchdowns and 
has completed two passes for 
40 yards and one TD. 

Thornton's 700 yards is 
already the 10th best single 
season rushing figure in NSU 
history. He also has 1,710 

career rushing yards to rj 
fifth on the all-time list ben 
Donald Johnson (2,21 
Charlie Tolar (2,194), Mf 
Cage (2,121) and Ri 
Ware (1,735). 

Quarterback Butch Bal 
broke the 1,000-yard pasi 
barrier for the season. Ban 
now has 94 completions in| 
attempts for 1,004 yards | 
four touchdowns. He's 
intercepted six times.

Lady of the Bracelet is 'what you make if 

by Bonnie Outlaw 

One thing I have noticed 
prevalent in the minds of high 
school students in the more 
xthan 10 high schools I've 
represented Northwestern at 
during my reign is the attitude 
that "Gee, a COLLEGE 
beauty queen. She must be 
able to sing dance, juggle, and 
do just about anything. Let's 
ask her to entertain." 

One hates to charade, but 
hesitates to inform them 
otherwise; so I let them judge 
for themselves as I "en- 
tertain" — I hesitate to call it 
singing — at their local 
pageant or school function. 

Not being an experienced 
singer — last year's LOB 
pageant was my first solo — I 
was in the position to make the 
most of these opportunities to 
perform as a singer. There 
was the stage and the 
audience. There was the 
SUGB or Office of External 
Affairs footing travel and 
meal expenses to various high 
schools and official Miss 
Louisiana preliminaries. 

Not a thing to worry about 

(Staff photos by Michael Alexander) 

until I set foot on that platform 
after being introduced as the 
special (putting it mildly) e- 
ntertainment for the evening. 
My heart and stomach would 
do gymnastic routines fit for 
the Olympics. At that moment 
I would thank God for his 
strength and for the help of 
several people on campus, 
without which I would have 
gotten no further than the first 
few chords of music. 

I realized the spectators are 
not seeing Bonnie Outlaw, but 
rather Miss Northwestern — 
the combined efforts of not 
just Bonnie, but of several 
others also. 

In my role as "Lady of the 
Bracelet," or "Miss Nor- 
thwestern" as was designated 
the official title for the first 
time in its history, many in- 
dividuals played important 
parts. They ranged from 
talented friends on campus to 
the higher-ups — God and my 

Rosemary Thompson, a 
close friend, suggested my 
talent routine. Knowing 
everyone expected me to 
twirl, I wanted to do 
something different just for 
kicks. Ruling out other 
possibilities, which I won't 
mention, Rosemary hit on the 
idea for me to sing. Humming 
a few bars to demonstrate my 
newly determined "talent" 
prompted her to suggest "The 
Last Blues Song." She even 
gave me the basis for what 
later became, with a few 
modifications, my costume for 
this comic routine which I took 
to the state talent division. 

Mary Allen and Mike Dykes 
spent hours helping me define 
the song's character and 
coaching me in the moves. 
The y also helped me conquer 
my tendencies to be shy. 

My talented musicians 
Malcolm Lanius, Joe Cotton, 
and Mike Wilson spent much 
time and energy helping me. I 
was familiar with them 
through my associations with 
the band, but did not realize 
the extent of their talents until 

they worked with me on dif- 
ferent numbers. 

Malcolm transposed most of 
my music, putting it into my 
key and jazzing it up, creating 
my own style for the numbers. 
Even though he was busy with 
his own musical job op- 
portunities, he always found 
time to help. 

Mike and Joe served as 
accompanists and chauffeurs. 
Joe played piano. Mike played 
piano and guitar. Mike also 
allowed me to premiere a 
beautiful song he had written 
called "Time." 

In compliance with 
traveling rules, many friends 
would travel as my official 
chaperone, and since I didn't 
have a driver's license when 
presented the title of Miss 
Northwestern, their 
"chauffeuring" was a great 
help. My thanks are extended 
to Debbie Hebert, Cleta Bice, 
Mark Warner, and Vickie 

My family was of enormous 
help. My brothers, while 
displaying a mixture of 
disbelief and amusement, 
backed me all the way. 
Though my mother was 
surprised, her sewing talent 
and her willingness to sew 
allowed me to represent NSU 
with pride and confidence. 

My father bred respon- 
sibility into me, making me 
stronger by letting me know I 
was making my own 
decisions. God gave me my 
strength, talent, and friend- 
ships. When pressures were at 
TNT levels, friends and family 
combined to offer challenges 
and encouragement to accept 
the responsibilities as Miss 
Northwestern. Traditionally 
one receives roses, a 
scholarship a crown, the 
"Lady of the Bracelet" 
bracelet, lots of congra- 
tulation'; and "glory," 
a feature in the Potpourri, and 
the opportunity to participate 
in the Natchitoches Christmas 
Lights Parade and the Miss 
Louisiana pageant. 

The $300 scholarship which I 

received was entirely spent in 
preparation for the Miss 
Louisiana pageant (dresses, 
evening gowns, coordinated 
accessories, pictures and the 

Any participation beyond 
the aforementioned activities 
is incidental and depends 
solely on the queen and how 
she wishes to represent North- 
western during her reign. The 
opportunities are numerous. 
Listed below are some of the 
various things I have done. 

Christmas Lights offered a 
Queen's Tea and a featured 
float in the annual parade. 

A champagne party was 
next on the agenda, but due to 
finals I was unable to attend 
this event given by the 
governor. I did have a chance 
to meet Governor Edwards at 
the recent ground breaking 
ceremonies for the NSU 
athletic complex. 

Several cities and parishes 
sent invitations to participate 
in their festivals and parades. 
During the Alexandria 
Christmas Parade, Com- 
missioner Hebert presented 
me a key to the city. 

I have attended other 
pageants as a guest. 
Sometimes I was simply 
recognized and presented with 
flowers, at other times I would 
perform as part of the 
pageant's entertainment, and 
I have recently served as one 
of the judges in the Nat- 
chitoches Little Miss Merry 
Christmas Pageant. 

Pictures are a natural part 
of representing your school. 
My smiling face has been seen 
in Alumni Columns, in the 
campus bookstore, in the 
Orientation handbook, and in 
various newspaper pictures. 
When the picture is taken, 
whether it be for goat-sacking 
or picking up baseball bats, 
often the title went with the 

Many hours are spent 
traveling throughout the state 
for public relations under the 

Office of External Affairs. It 
was a great feeling to tell 

students about NSU. I also am 
called upon to welcome 
visiting high school con- 
ventions which meet on 

Serving coffee to the Board 
of Regents and accepting Blue 
Key's invitation to take a day 
off to visit the homeless yet 
enthusiastic children at the 
Masonic Home were two 
unusual experiences I had as 
Miss Northwestern. 

The week spent at the Miss 
Louisiana pageant was ex- 
citing and impossible to relate 
in this article. Ask me about it 
sometime: I would love to tell 
you about it. 

Although prestige 
sometimes came with the 
people and the event, there 
were times the title brought a 
good laugh; such as wet 
sponges in the face and 
buckets of water on the head 
at UnFair. 

I would like to thank 
President Kilpatrick, the 
Union Board and special 

friends for the flowers I 
received. Thanks also go to 
Vickie Procell who wrote 
funny letters. The actions of 
these people were designed to 
make me or any LOB 
titleholder relax under the 
pressures of state com- 

To the girls who entered the 
1975-76 Miss Northwestern 
Lady of the Bracelet Pageant 
an old saying, "Beauty is in 
the eye of the beholder," is a 
basic truism. Everyone has 
their own opinion of beauty, 
which is why a college 
"beauty queen" should not get 
a swelled head should she win, 
nor feel dishonored should she 
not be named to wear the 
crown. There is someone in 
the crowd pulling for each 
contestant. Respect for the 
individuality of others and 
development of talent is 
something each of you has the 
chance to experience. The 
year ahead is yours to enjoy.

'Man of 



KE dribbles to stardom 

More than 30 members of 
the Kappa Sigma fraternity 
chapter at Northwestern State 
University will dribble a 
basketball over 250 miles to 
New Orleans beginning this 
weekend in an effort to raise 
funds for the fight against 
muscular dystrophy.

The fund-raising project will 
begin in Natchitoches at noon 
on Friday Nov. 21 and is 
scheduled to end on Wed. Nov. 
26 in New Orleans at the 
Superdome. Plans are being 
made to have the fraternity 
members present the 
basketball used in the trip to a 
member of the New Orleans 
Jazz, who play the Atlanta 
Hawks that night in a National 
Basketball Association game. 

Coordinating the fraternity 
project are Kappa Sigma 
president John Russell, John 
Breland, and Phil Barbaree . 

In 1972, the NSU campus 
fraternity members dribbled 
a basketball from Nat- 
chitoches to Baton Rouge for 
what was generally con- 
sidered a "world record" for 
such a feat. Funds for mus- 
cular dystrophy are collected 
along the route by the 
fraternity members. 

According to the coor- 
dinators, five-man teams will 
be utilized in the project, with 
each team dribbling the 
basketball for about four or 
five hours on each shift. 

The fraternity will begin its 

dribbling journey to New 
Orleans with a march through 

Saturday the students will 
be in Alexandria before 
leaving for Baton Rouge, 
traveling down Louisiana 
Highway 1. The dribblers are 
scheduled to arrive in Baton 

Rouge late Sunday night and 
will march their way to the 
steps of the State Capitol on 

The fraternity members will 
leave for New Orleans late 
Monday night, arriving in the 
Crescent City on Wednesday. 

Three Columns 

fraternity will attempt to break their own past 
record of dribbling a basketball from Nat-

Is this a rock concert? Or a 
Christmas party? Well, call it 
any name you like, but one 
thing is clear, five local bands 
have been invited to perform 
at the grand opening of the 
university's KNWD-FM radio 
station on December 5. 

According to Gary Palmer, 
general manager of the 
station, the five bands that 
will perform include the 
Shortguns, the Axis, Faust, 
Hearts Island, and Dr. Queen. 
All five bands have been 

s il Ve r E a §le 
Mining C °- 


booked through an agency in 

The concert which will start 
at 2 p. m. is expected to last 12 
hours, and it will take place at 
the Armory on the Fair 

The grand opening is not 
going to be an all-music ec- 
casion because other things 
have been planned to 
guarantee maximum en- 
joyment for students. There 
will be sales of beer and food. 
The menu will include, 
sausage, chicken and jam- 
balayo, said Palmer. 

The unusual ticket for the 
occasion is the KNWD T shirt 
which can be purchased for $6. 
Anybody who wishes to attend 
the grand opening concert i3 
expected to wear the T shirt. 

"We have a limited number 
of T shirts and they will be 
sold on first come, first serve 
basis," according to Palmer. 

The shirts could be pur- 
chased at the radio station. 
However, plans are underway 
to set up selling posts in the 
Student Union Building and 
the cafeteria, after necessary 
arrangements have been 
made with appropriate 
campus officials. 

Although, the program is 




the main idea of students 
working at the station, and 
does not have the financial 
backing of the university, it is 
not designed primarily for 
profit making. 

"We are only interested in 
giving everybody a nice time. 
We are not overly out to make 
money, we will even try to 
keep the prices of food and 
beer down, but we cannot 
afford to lose," he said. 

Al Gdssett, the en- 
tertainment chairman for 
KNWD, has been credited for 
putting the concert together. 

The radio station hopes to 
make this occasion a yearly

Journalism teachers and 
advisers of student 
publications at high schools 
and colleges across the state 
will meet in Shreveport Nov. 
25 to organize the Louisiana 
Journalism Education 

The meeting will be held 
from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. in the 
Barnwell Art Center in con- 
junction with the Louisiana 
Teachers Association Con- 

Coordinators of the 
organizational meeting are 
Ezra Adams, professor of 
journalism at Northwestern 
State University; Mrs. 
Maredia Bowdon, journalism 
teacher at C. E. Byrd High 
School in Shreveport, and 
Mrs. Lou Anne Smith, jour- 
nalism teacher at DeRidder 
High School. 

According to the coor- 
dinators, the proposed 
association has been sanc- 
tioned by both the LTA and the 
Louisiana Education As- 
sociation. Its general purpose 
is to improve journalism 
education in the state. 

"The Louisiana State Board 
of Education has for many 
years recognized journalism 
as a teaching discipline," said 
Adams. "The Board has also 
certified teachers to instruct 
students in the skills of 
journalism, but studies in 
recent years have shown that 
journalism instruction in 
Louisiana high schools and in 
many of our colleges has been 
neglected. Students desire and 
need proper instruction in the 
skills of communication." 

Adams said the new state 
association is being organized 
to promote the cause of 
journalism education, to 
advance the standards of 
teaching journalism and to 
secure conditions essential to 
the highest efficiency of the 
journalism teachers. 

The NSU professor said 
journalism students and 
professionals may hold 
membership in the

tutorial format.

Miss Young is basing her protest on

students who voted in the cafeteria 
simply voted and then handed someone 
the ballots. The ballots were then 
stacked in a pile s

the ballots cast at the cafeteria."

elements were left off of her resume 
that should have been included. As an 
example Miss Young stated she was 
President of the Dorm Council. 

"I included this on my resume that 
the elections board asked for but it did 
not appear on there at election time," 
she added. "Now I understand that the 
elections board has the right to edit the

don't see how they could omit an 
office held by a contestant such as the 

Presidency of an organization." 

Another major complaint of Miss 
Young is that co-chairman of the 
elections board, Joani Rosenthal, asked 
her her grade point average for election 

"I told Joani I had a 3.35," said Miss 
Young , " but when my resume was 
posted-my GPA was omitted . Also, it 
was omitted in the run-off elections. 
r *°y have the authority to check these 
things out with the Registrar office," 
she added. 

"So I can not see why mine was 
omitted when all the other contestants 
were used." 

Miss Young added that ballots were 
counted before the election was over 
and on one occasion one of the co- 
chairmans of the election actually 
looked at who was voted for by an in- 
dividual . 

According to Miss Rosenthal," I know 
of no such irregularities."

Major Deen speaks 
at Military Acadmey 

Maj. Don Deen of the Reserve Of- 
ficers Training Corps at Northwestern 
State University will go to the United 
States Military Academy at West Point, 
N.Y., Tuesday to relate to ad- 
ministrators and cadets his ex- 
periences in training female ROTC 

Deen, an assistant professor of 
military science at Northwestern, 
commanded one of two coeducational 
companies during the Third ROTC 
Region's advanced summer camp 
conducted at Fort Riley, Kan. It was 
the first time the nation's ROTC 
program had accepted female cadets 
for the six-week training program. 

Next fall, the U.S. Military Academy, 
the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, 
Md., and the U.S. Air Force Academy 
at Colorado Springs, Colo., will become 
coeducational for the first time in the 
history of the three service academies. 

Deen's company at the advanced 
summer camp consisted of 54 female 
cadets from ROTC units at colleges and 
universities across the nation. The two 
coeducational companies were at- 
tached to the Third Cadet Battalion, 

which was commanded by Lt. Col. Paul 
R. Reed, who is professor and director 
of the ROTC program at Northwestern. 

"We are being invited to West Point 
for the purpose of relating our training 
experiences at summer camp," said D- 
een. "I was chosen to represent the 
Third ROTC Region, and what I will be 
relating will be my experiences gained 
through day to day contact with the 
female cadets." 

Last summer, some 245 coeds par- 
ticipated in advanced ROTC summer 
camp programs for cadets who had 
completed two years of ROTC. More 
than 130 female cadets trained at Third 
ROTC Region headquarters in Kansas. 

"At Fort Riley, "said Deen, "the type 
of environment in which our cadets 
trained will be different from the en- 
vironment to be found at West Point. It 
will be a closed environment there, a 
much different environment from what 
ours was." 

For the first time in the 25-year 
history of the Northwestern ROTC 
program, a female cadet participated 
in and completed the six-week summer 
encampment at Fort Riley.

The Way I See It 

It was like going back 
through time (in a time 
machine equal or better than 
the one on "Lost in Space".). 
Wednesday night the 
melodious strains of some of 
everyone's favorite Christmas 
carols could be heard. They 
were heard on many streets 
around the city of Nat- 
chitoches.. .sometimes when 
the carolers sang at the door 
of a private home, sometimes 
from the back of a gray-blue 
pick-up truck, sometimes in 
front of Shamrock Liquor 
Store and sometimes, yes 

The population of Nat- 
chitoches multiplied tenfold 
Saturday, and getting around 
in Natchitoches was a mess. 
Collie got it right about being a 
rather strange was to 
celebrate the birth of "the 
prince of Peace." 

There are a few good things 
that come out of the Festival 

Most students, it seems, are 
the family member put in 
charge of trimming "ye olde 
Christmas tree," which 
means when you get home 
completely exhausted from 
finals and moving all your 
stuff, you'll get to go help pick 
out the tree. 

Everyone is in search of the 
"perfect" Christmas tree. 

Though the true meaning of 
Christmas is an overworked 
subject indeed, what can you 
do during the Christmas 
season BUT comment. 
Christmas is probably that 
time when friends are closest 
and we even put our tongues 
and fists to rest in our 
relationships with our 

Thanksgiving is a time of 
"thanks giving," but somehow 
Christmas seems the right 
time for this also. 

There are so many people to 
thank for this semester, as far 
as Current Sauce is con- 
cerned, there's only room to 
list a few.

The Current Sauce staff will 
undergo a few changes for 
next semester. Several of the 
staff will be moving on to 
somewhat greener pastures, 
and there will be a couple of 
new faces and some old faces 
showing up in different posit- 
ions. Leaving us are our 
managing editor, Steve

manager, Doug Bell, our

From a distance it had all 
the markings of a old movie. 
Some thing along the lines of 
"Tammy Goes to College".- 
The fraternity men singing 
Christmas songs in front of the

Sandra Dee wasn't there to 
enjoy it.) 

But all kidding aside, it's 
nice to see a group getting in 
the Christmas spirit, or 
maybe thai should be 
reversed. Anyway the Sig 

though. Natchitoches 
businesses do their largest 
selling days Friday and 
Saturday of the Festival. And 
it puts a lot of people on 
around the Northwestern 
campus, maybe even a few 
prospective students— which 
we certainly need! 

And the Festival gives us all 
a chance to unwind before the 

Some people are so finicky 
that even the perfectly shaped 
artificial trees aren't good 
enough for them. One man 
here in Natchitoches has the 
sure-fire cure for the dilemma 
of finding the perfect tree. He 
goes to the store and buys the 
first one he comes to. Then he 
goes home and takes out his 
power drill and puts branches 

responsible with the actual 
production of Current Sauce, 
are of course people like our 
advisor, Franklin I. Presson, 
who is known around the office 
as FIP. Whether it was 
helping solve problems in the 
business department or 
running the "shuttle" out to 
the Natchitoches Times, he 
was and always is willing to 
help us in our hours of need, 
which have been many this

The Readers Comment 



I am writing in regard to the 
"bizarre incident" that oc- 
curred Nov. 3. First of all, let 
me say that I am an alumni of 
Northwestern, but my wife is 
still here working on her 
master's degree. She is the 
house director in Caddo. I 
work in Bossier City during 
the week so the only time I'm 
here is on the weekend. Being 
away so much you can see I 
don't need the extra hassle of 
having to worry about her 

When my wife called me 
after the "bizarre incident" 
occurred, my first thought 
was that it had finally hap- 
pened. I knew it was only a 
matter of time until something 
like this occurred. (And I 
would like to take this op- 
portunity to thank the 
University Police for their fast 
action. We appreciate it.) But 
if a certain department on 
campus had been performing 
their job, this unfortunate 
occurance would never have 

Anybody who has lived on 
this campus for any length of 
time and had anything to do 
with Caddo dorm knows that it 
was no trouble at all to get in 
the dorm when the doors were 
"locked." All you had to do 
was pull on the door real hard 
and it would pop open. I've 
done it many times when I 
found myself locked out. 
Caddo has long been nothing 
more than a crackerbox to get 

My wife has put in several 
requests at different times for 

the doors in Caddo to be fixed, 
but as you can see, these 
request were ignored by the 
powers that be. So, as a result, 
an unwanted visitor dropped 
in on a couple of our coeds who 
thought they were "safe" in 
their own rooms. 

I don't believe housing is 
responsible for the easy entry 
of Caddo. I feel certain they 
made out the proper work 
order forms to have the doors 
fixed. It's where those work 
order forms were sent that 
you can find the problem. I 
have found that maintenance 
is very good about overlooking 
work orders. As an example of 
their eagerness to perform 
their job, I will draw upon a 
personal experience. I worked 
for two years as a R.A. in 
Rapides Dorm. In all that time 
I had no heating or air- 
conditioning in my room. I 
tried several times to have it 
fixed but to no avail. I still 
have the work order and I 
would imagine that the unit 
that was to be used to replace 
mine is still in the Rapides 

I'm sure if you check, others 
can tell you of similar ex- 
periences. Of course, the 
biggest example which 
everyone could see occurred 
November 3. As easy as those 
doors were to open, the break- 
in should have reff ered to as a 
"potential everyday oc- 
curence" instead of a "bizarre 

It's a pitty that two girls had 
to be hurt before someone 
realized that the doors needed 
fixing. My wife has told me 

that maintenance did fix the 
doors, so I guess now I can 
sleep easier in Shreveport 
knowing my wife is "safe" at 
school. Sincerely 
Stuart Smith 

(Editor's Note: There have 
been rumblings about the "p- 
roblem with getting main- 
tenance to do anything" for a 
long time. It is a situation 
mostly inflicted on the house 
directors of the different 
dorms. But it seems that 
rocking the boat is not always 
safe as far as jobs are con- 
cerned, and criticizing anyone 
from the administration and 
staff down to the student 
leaders is frowned upon. 

Perhaps this letter alone by 
putting the problem out in the 
open will perhaps help change 
the system, though it's 
doubtful. It's too bad it took a 
horrifying incident like the 
one that took place in Caddo to 
bring this out and to remind us 
that the safety of a locked door 
is about the only safety left, 
and possibly that won't even 

To the Editor, 

I am writing this in concern 
of the KNWD-FM Radio 
Station on the Northwestern 
State University campus. 
Ever since they have gone on 
the air, our Dorm, Varnado 
Hall has not been able to pick 
up any stations except maybe 
channel 5 and channel 12 in 
Shreveport. We have not been 
able to watch any of our 
favorite programs, because of 
the transmitting of the radio

station over the T.V. Sit. Our 
dorm is not the only on? that 
cannot pick U p any T.V. 
stations. The infirmary cannot 
pick up any T.V. stations and 
also Louisiana Hall, we have 
been to your station and have 
told you of the problem, but it 
does not seem that anything is 
being done about it. Your 
signal is just too strong and is 
niining the reception of all of 
these T.V. sets. I would like to 
inform the radio station that 
we would like to have 
something done about this or 
we the dorms may have to 
take more drastic measures. 
Housing said that they were 
trying to work something out, 
but that is not helping matters 
out so far. We are still not able 
to watch our T.V. programs. 
We think that to have a radio 
station on campus is fine, but 
when it comes to blocking out 
our watching T.V. then 
something is going to have to 
be done to correct matter. 
When I think of the money that 
I spent to live in this dorm and 
we can't even have a T.V. set 
to watch then something is 
going to have to be done about 
it. I know that I have come up 
here to get an education, but 
when it comes to relaxing, I 
like to watch T.V. I don't think 
that I should have to go clear 
across campus over to 
Rapides Hall when I want to 
watch T.V. 

This is what it all boils down 
to: We are going to have to set 
up a meeting with housing and 
just see what the problem is 
and see if there can't be 
something done about your 
over modulation. I know that 
Paul Keyser has been working 
on this problem, but our 
dorms are so close to the 
station that the filters that we 
put in aren't strong enough to 
knock out the frequency. I

as named 

The Karate for Christ Club 
met last week in the Student 
Union and voted to do 
everything within their power 
to keep Christ in Christmas. 
The plan apparently calls for 
them to use their skills on 
sales girls working stores 
which, in their advertising, 
spell Christmas with an X and 
make it 'Xmas'. 

All over Natchitoches 
merchants are decorating 
their stores with the pecularly 
American hoge-poge of 
creches and reindeer pursuing 
the end of the year Christmas 
dollar. At the same time 
clergy are beginning to re- 
work last years sermons 
(titled: "The Real Meaning of 
Christmas") and newspaper 
editors are looking for that file 
titled "Brotherhood is what its 
all about". 

Actually the Christmas 
ritual presents the editorial 
writer with a real challenge. 
How do we make the same old 
points without using the same 
old words? Editorially, 
Christmas is either a time for 
simplistic 'all-the- world 
needs-now-is-love' or 
sophisticated pessimism. In 
any case, everybody seems to 
feel that it is a time to have 
remarkable thoughts, im- 
portant things to say, 
somehow re-affirm all that is 
really good in life. 

We all de-cry the com- 
mercialism of Christmas as 
we race each other to the 
stores to make the pre- 
christmas sales. We always 
spend more than we planned 
but do so with a sense of it all 
being worth it because 

Christmas is supposed to be 
like that, isn't it? 

The Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival is a case in a point. A 
member of the Presbyterian 
Church says it this way: 
"Imagin welcoming the 
Prince of Peace with 
fireworks!" What a way to 
welcome the Prince of Peace 
indeed! My friends tell me 
that the amount of alchohol 
sold during the Christmas 
Festival easily equals a whole 
month's business, or more. 
I've never seen the tonnage 
figures for the litter the City 
Sanitation crew picks up the 
morning after. Even the 
Emergency Room at the 
hospital shows an increase in 
business during the Festival 

You think I am about to say 
that we should cut all this out. 
On the contrary. I suspect this 
really is the most honest way 
we could have to put out the 
welcome mat. The crass 
commercialism, the tinsel 
good will, the bloated bounty, 
the thoughtless waste of this 
Christmas season, all are 
most appropriate ways of 
welcoming the one who would 
come by incarnate among us. 

You see, we've got this 
notion that God is supposed to 
come and take us out of all 
this. He is going to come and 
take us out of our troubles. Up 
where he is. Where all is 
peaceful and happy— where 
there aren't any troubles. We 
secretly want that. We 
imagine a 'spiritual' life apart 
from this 'veil of tears'; we 
like the kind of God who would 
crib answers for us on exams,

Christmas is the opposite of 
that. Rather than wisk us out 
of our pettiness and egotism, 
our consuming self- 
centerdness God joins us in 
the midst of it. That's what 
'incarnate' means. In- 
carnation speaks of the 1» 
flesh-ment' of God. God did 
not just look human, or act 
human; he was not some kind 
of Superman who looked like 
everyone else but had high- 
powere insides. God became 
flesh, like you. Like me. 

I suspect we are not too sure 
that we want a God that values 
this world, this place, this 
time, these people. We would 
rather talk about a God dif- 
ferent from here. 
Because.. .because if we really 
believed Christmas we might 
not trash our world, and other 
people, and our own lives quite 
as much as we do. 

The commercial Jesus, 
painted on some store win- 
dows to lure that consumer to 
spend his Christmas dollar 
can really become the image 
of the God who came to us— 
helpless and crying. A most 
appropriate welcome for the 
God who would live among us.

that they can be on the lookout for your books

The library is taking steps 
backwards because costs of 
materials have increased but 
appropriations haven't grown 
to match the increment of 
increase, according to Donald 
MacKenzie, librarian of 
Eugene P. Watson Memorial 

He said the library is feeling 
the pinch of inflation and 
higher prices for books and 
journals. As a result the lib- 
rary has become less efficient 
and it has been found lacking 
in two areas where the 
university offers doctorate 

To rectify the situation, 
MacKenzie suggested a limit 
to the dimension of university 
programs or an increase of the 
total appropriations to the 
library. All funds except a 
small amount from the federal 
government, come from the 
state government. 

He said students can help 
effectively as they have done 
in the case of the Recreational 
Complex. However he doubts 
whether the student body will 
be willing to pay a special 
library fee. 

Efforts are being made to 
reduce subscriptions to 
journals, magazines and 
newspapers. Several hundred 
subscriptions will not be 
renewed after the current 
ones expire. London Times, a 
daily newspaper imported 
from England, will be dropped 
because of its cost. 

Since over 60 percent of the 
total library budget is 
allocated to the serials 
department, the library staff 
are working closely with the 
faculty to determine the 
number of periodicals that are 
not being widely used. These 
will be dropped to save money 
and to buy essential books for 
the library. 

He said the budget for books 
is less than $35,000, out of 
which $10,000 has already 
been spent. There are 
presently about 350,000 bound 
volumes of books and 
microfilms in the library. In a 
statistical report on the 
library, MacKenzie said "the 
library has in the past counted 
actual cataloged books, 
cataloged thesis and disser- 
tations and bound periodicals 
as physical volumes. 
Generally unreported are 

periodicals in microform and 
uncataloged U. S. and 
Louisiana documents." The 
present figure, therefore, 
includes a!! the various 
holdings in the library here 
and in the Shreveport campus 

It was also disclosed that the 
library has over the past few 
months received numerous 
prestigious gifts. Orval E. 
Faubus, former governor of 
Arkansas from 1955-67 
presented the university with 
an autographed copy of his 
book "In This Faraway 
Land." Col. George H. Reid, 
coordinator of NSU education 
program at Fort Polk, 
donated books on the Middle 
East and its political role. 

The Manion Forum 
presented four cassettes of 
documented study on the 
Constitution of the U. S. The 
library also received the J. A. 
DuCournau u Collection of 
1500 volumes. DuCournau is a 
retired vice president of the 
Wells Bank in San Francisco. 
The volumes are centered 
primarily on the areas of art, 
travel, biography, history and 

Since the report last fall in 
the Current Sauce about ex- 
cessive vandalism and theft in 
the library, a few steps have 
been taken to correct the 
situation. An electronically 
operated detection system 
was installed. Although there 
are no records to justify his 
statement, MacKenzie thinks 
the system has greatly helped 
the library. 

Many journals are now 
being received in form of 
microfilms. The faculty also 
have partial responsibility in 
redeeming the situation. 
Suggestions have been made 
that instructors give the 
library at least 48 hour notice 
whenever assignments in- 
volving the use of magazines 
are given to students. He 
^contends that with enough 
time Xerox copies of articles 
can be made and placed in the 
reference room for student 

He also said that the dark 
room located on the second 
floor is expected to be com- 
pleted hy the end of the 
semester. It will enhance 
standard photographic 
processing in the library.

(Editor's Note: Here are 
some energy saving tips from 
the Federal Energy Ad- 
ministration to make your 
Christmas more economical.) 

It's time to really con- 
centrate on Christmas now. If 
you haven't already done so, 
finish your gift list today — 
and chart your shopping 
expeditions to save traveling 
time and fuel. 

Lower indoor temperatures 
are IN this year — for econo- 
mical and energy con- 
servation reasons. How about 
putting some sweaters and 
long warm underwear on your 
gift list to help keep your loved 
ones warm in their cooler 
homes and offices? 

Give Blankets 

Make it easier for your 
friends and relatives to turn 
their heat down at night and 
save on energy costs. Electric 
blankets use little energy 
themselves, but keep that 
winter chill out. 

Give gifts with year round 
benefits. If you have ap- 
pliances on your gift list, 

select models that use the 
least amount of energy. The 
recipient will save on gas or 
electric bills all year long. 

Living Trees 

Consider getting a living, 
rather than cut, Christmas 
tree this year. You can use it 
indoors during the holidays. 
Then plant it on the windward 
edge of your property. As the 
tree grows larger, it will 
protect your home against 
cold winds — and reduce your 
heating bills for years to 

A winter fashion energy- 
saving tip for the lady at 
home. Wear slacks, they'll 
keep you 1.5 degrees warmer 
than a skirt. 

Christmas Lights 

Buying new Christmas tree 
lights? You'll save electricity 
by selecting strands of 
miniature on midget bulbs. 
They use only 18 watts per 
hour per set. 

Make your Christmas tree 
twinkle — literally — and save 
electricity at the same tone.

the time, so electricity is cut in 

With the Christmas holidays 
fast approaching, you may 
need extension cords for new 
appliances, or to light your 
tree. Undersized cords can 
waste electricity. They can be 
a safety hazard too. Check 
your supply early, and be sure 
you have some heavy duty 
cords on hand. 

If you have a large indoor 
Christmas tree and prefer 
decorating it with full-sized 
bulbs, select a set with cooler 
burning bulbs. They are 
designed for plastic trees, but 
they're bright and attractive, 
and draw only 6 watts per bulb 
compared with the 7% watts 
used by standard bulbs. 

You can make your 
Christmas tree twinkle with 
either regular size or small 
bulb sets. Most new midget 
bulb sets include one flasher 
bulb which makes the entire 
string go on and off. For 

standard size sets you need a 
flasher bulb for each socket. 
In either case you have half 
the electricity you would use 
on lights that stay on con- 

Are you turning you heat 
back to 60 degrees at night? 
For every degree you dial 
down, you can save at least 1 
percent on your heating bill. 


Is the frost in your freezer 
thicker than V* of an inch? 
Defrost before the holidays. 
Frost on freezer walls wastes 
energy and takes up usable 

Festive Food 

Plan your Christmas menu 
early. Make up your list with 
care. Check your stores for 

specials coming up. Save gas 
by avoiding unnecessary 

Use small appliances such 
as toasters, electric skillets or 
bake ovens for the small 
goodies that make your 
Christmas feasts more 
festive. Save the oven for long- 
cooking, larger dishes. 

During this busy pre-holiday 
season try cooking several m- 
eals at one time. You'll save 
energy by using your stove 
fully during the longer cooking 
period, and just heating you 
own pre-cooked meals later. 

A Few Extra Tips 

Last-minute shopping on 
your mind? Combine your 
trips with friends and save 

Here's an easy way to save 
energy, and be festive too. 
When you turn on your 
Christmas tree lights, turn off 
the equivalent amount of light 
elsewhere in the house. 

If you like fresh air at night 
— turn off the heat in the 
bedroom and close the door 
before opening the windown. 
Otherwise you waste warmed 
air in the rest of the house. 

If you're going away for the 
holidays, save energy at 
home. Lower the thermostat 
to around 50 degrees — shut 
off, or dial down, your water 

Are you using your 
radiators as bookshelves or 
catchalls? Clear them off. 
Clutter on radiator tops im- 
pedes the flow of heat — and 
increases your fuel bill. 

Have you checked the seals 
around your refrigerator and 
oven doors? If they are not air- 
tight, adjust the latch or 


ou think f 

replace the seals to preven 
loss of chilled or heated air 
and save food and energy. 

Use your kitchen ven 
sparingly. In just one hour and

reveport-trts, enrolled at NSU, 
ially those from the Far 
and Africa, it is not 
imically feasible to go 
t this Christmas. The rise 
Ration has skyrocketed 
ost of plane tickets and 
, of these students prefer 
ik^q jpend their money on 
Kion rather than go home 

just for Christmas. Students 
from the nearby South 
American countries have 
made plans to go home. 

Aracely Martinez, a student 
from Mexico, said she will be 
home for the holidays. She 
said, "I love to go and drink a 
little beer and have fun with 
my friends." Aracely said 
there are similarities in the 
holiday festivities observed in 
America and Mexico. 
Alejander M. Trojer from 
Argentine also plans to go 
home for the holiday. 

Students who cannot afford 
to go home, generally visit 
their friends at this time. 
When questioned about their 
Christmas plans Oamrong 
Asithambl of India said he will 
be visiting friends in St. Louis,

For those who remain in 
Natchitoches, the Baptist 
Student Union is hosting their 
annual Friendship In- 
ternational. Lodging and food 

are usually provided free of 
charge for foreign students 
who participate. 

The program, which runs 
until January 2, keeps the 
students from suffering the 
agonies of boredom and 
loneliness. It attracts foreign 
students from different areas 
of the country. 

Mrs. Agatha Newitt, 
director of the Placement and 
International Office, said she 
would have liked to work out 
an entertainment program for 
foreign students. She com 
plained that lack of response 
to previous programs has 
made this impossible at this 

"What I would have liked us 
to do is have a party, but you 
couldn't be sure that these 
people would show up," she 

One major obstacle to such 
a program is the fact that so 
many countries are 

■■r* 1 

represented and students tend 
to associate with people from 
their own country. It is hoped 
that a oneness of these groups 
will result and help plans 
materialize in the future. 

Although Christmas is 
observed in some of the 
nations represented on 
campus, students from the 
Far East said that it is not that 
important a holiday in their 
countries. It is just another 
day. A majority of Far 
Eastners are Buddhists and 
they do not observe the 
holiday at all. The most 
commonly celebrated holiday 
is the New Year which occurs 
April 13 or 14 in countries like 
Thailand, India, and Taiwan. 

To the student body, faculty, 
and staff, one foreign student 
wishes: "Odun Keresimesi yi 
a yabo," which translates: 
"May your Christmas be full 
of joy."

Those who attended per- 
formances of "You Can't Take 
It With You" by the NSU 
drama department ex- 
perienced a rare treat: 
Mardikians, a Russian cookie, 
served with Russian tea. The 
cookies were made by Mrs. 
Ann N. Black, English 
Department instructor and 
wife of Speech and Journalism 
Department Head, Dr. E. 
Robert Black. 

Mrs. Black said that she was 
asked to make something 
pertinent to the play. She 
explained that mardikians 
were chosen because there 
were two Russian characters 
in the play. "I wanted to make 
something different," she 

The Blacks have received 
numerous requests for the 
recipe from theater goers who 
purchased the mardikians to 
help the department raise 

Mrs. Black gave the recipe 
as follows: 

2 Cups brown sugar

2 cups flour, sifted 

Vz cup butter 

1 cup, minus 2 Tablespoons, 
1 teaspoon soda 
1 egg, beaten 

1 teaspoon nutmeg 
13 cup chopped pecans 
4 teaspoon cinnamon

MARDIKIANS — A favorite at the Black's home, 
the Russian cookies can become a holiday 
favorite at your home too. All you have to do is 
clip the recipe and take it home and then beg mom

that anyone could make them, so, if need be, let 
mom finish wrapping presents while you make 
them yourself.

Parish shows his stuff 

SEVEN FOOTERS — John Green (dark Uniform 

shooting) arches the ball above the outstretched 
hand of 7-foot-l Centenary Center Robert Parish 
during the Gent's 82-67 victory over the Demons of 
Northwestern Thursday night at Shreveport. 
Green, who stands only 6-foot-l, was a seven foot 
high jumper in high school. Also shown on the 
play is Bernard Holder (5 showing). 

NSU inks 
four signees 

Two outstanding backs and 
a pair of promising linemen 
are Northwestern State 
University's first four football 
recruits for 1975, according to 
NSU Head Football Coach A. 
L. Williams. 

The group includes center- 
defensive tackle John Skinner 
of DeRidder, running back 
Connie Hatcher of Jena, in- 
terior lineman Stacy Holder of 
Shreveport-Southwood and 
quarterback-defensive back 
Kenny Philibert of 
Shreveport-Captain Shreve. 

Philibert, a 5-foot-10 12, 165- 
pounder, completed 53 of 122 
passes for 1,012 yards and 10 
touchdowns. He led District 2- 
AAAA passers in completions, 
yards and touchdown passes. 

As a junior Philibert was 
considered Shreve's best 
defensive back by Coach Lee 
Hedges. Philibert con- 
centrated on offense his senior 

The 5-foot-9. 165-DOund 

Hatcher averaged 6.4 yards 
per carry for Coach Ronnie 
Whatley's Jena Giants during 
1975. Hatcher scored nine 
touchdowns while gaining 542 
yards rushing. 

Hatcher, an outstanding 
prospect in track, has one 9.5 
clocking to his credit and is a 
consistent 9.7 sprinter. He was 
the "Outstanding Trackman" 
at the district meet— which 
was won by Jena last year. 

Skinner, a 6-foot-5, 230- 
pounder, was one of the top 
linemen in District 4-AAAA. 
His high school coach is 
Charles Montgomery. 

Holder was one of the 
mainstays for Southwood's 
drive to the Quad-A playoffs. 
The 6-foot-l, 215-pound Holder 
is expected to be an- offensive 
guard at NSU. He's only 17 
years old. 

Williams signed Holder and 
Philibert while Joe Raymond 
Peace inked Hatcher and 
Herbie Smith signed Skinner. 

Many consider Robert 
Parish one of the best centers 
playing in the country today. 
The big seven-foot Gent 
displayed a little of that 
greatness last Thursday night 
as he led the Centenary 
Gentlemen over Northwestern 

However, NSU and 
especially Demon center Rick 
Reass didn't seem to be im- 
pressed with the big man's 
credentials. Reass, who 
stands only 6-6 gave Parish 
more than he could handle as 
his excellent defensive per- 
formance slowed Parish to 
only seven points in the first 

Reass' aggressive defensive 
work forced Parish to pass off 
or shoot from long range. 
However, the senior from 
Florida did pay the price for 
his work as he got into early 
foul trouble. 

The game was very evenly 
played until 7:42 left in the 
first half when Centenary 
erupted from an 18-2 spurt 
that the Demons never 
recovered from. The Gents 
went into intermission with a 
comfortable 17 point half time 

But what really surprised 

the standing room only crowd 
in the dome was that the Gents 
had been able to erupt for 
those 18 points without the 
help of the big man. Parish 
left the game at 7:42 to go in 
the half and did not return 
until there was 1 : 27 showing in 
the first half. 

In the second half Parish did 
a lot of erupting on his own as 
he provided a one man show 
for the gathering. Parish 
quickly went to work on 
Reass. And with 13 : 05 showing 
on the clock Reass was forced 
to leave the game with his fifth 
personal foul. 

After Reass left the game, 
Bernard Holder tried his hand 
at stopping Parish. But Holder 
had little success. 

Northwestern actually 
outscored Centenary in the 
second half 43-41 despite 
Parish. The Demons matched 
Centenary basket for basket 
throughout the game, but 
thanks to Parish's per- 
formance never could get any 
closer than 12 points on a 
Holder tip in. 

Centenary hit 32 of 73 field 
goals and cashed in on 18 of 23 
free throws. NSU connected 
on 29 of 71 floor shots, but had 
a lot of trouble at the free 

throw line as they hit only 9 of 
20 charity shots. 

Billy Reynolds was the high 
scorer for the Demons with 16 
points and 11 rebounds while 
Lester Davis of Natchitoches 
and reserve Holder added 13 
and 11 respectively. Holder 
did manage 11 rebounds. 

Parish finished the night 
with 31 points and 21 rebounds. 
Teammates Nate Bland 
scored 12 and Barry McLeod 
hit for 10. 

The Demons did not have 
such a rough time of it earlier 
in the week as they knocked 
off arch rival Louisiana 
College in a fast paced game 
in Prather Coliseum. 

Much of the excitement was 
provided by junior college 
transfer Dan Bell. The 6-foot-3 
junior from Huntsville, Ala. 
personally led the Demons to a 
73-66 victory over the Wild- 

The Wildcats got right down 
to business as they jumped out 
to a 16-4 lead before Bell and 
company began to chip away 
at the bulge. At the half the 
Cats still led and the Demons 
went in down 40-31. 

In the second half Bell and 
Billy Reynolds went to work 
on the Cats. With Bell hitting 

from 25-feet away and 
Reynolds hitting from the 
corner the pair combined with 
a tough Demon defense to cut 
that lead and then go ahead 
with 7:39 left in the game. 

The duo kept up the 
fireworks and the Demons 
quickly pulled away from the 
Cats. Bell finished the night 
with 21 followed closely by 
Reynolds with 19. Reynolds 
was also leading rebounder 
with 14. 

The big surprise was the 
fact that the Demons outre- 
bounded the Wildcats. Nor- 
thwestern usually has a lot of 
trouble from the Wildcats. 
NSU outrebounded the cats 46- 

The tough Demon defense 
limited the Cats big man 
Clarence Hall to only four 
points in the second half after 
Hall had cashed in 15 big 
points in the first half. 

Northwestern, who is now 2- 
1 on the season will have a 10- 
day breather . The next home 
game will be on Dec. 18 as 
they play the University of 
Arkansas in a double header. 
The second game of the double 
header will feature Louisiana 
College against Hendrix 
College also of Arkansas.

"Flashy Patty" Nolen came

over the Tigerettes of 
Ouachita Baptist University. 
This was the Lady Demons 
season opener.

field goal attempts and 
dropped in one of two free 
throws for 17 points to lead the 
Demons. Nolen also had six 

Nolen got most of her points 
on the Demons fast breaks as 
she shared time with Lisa 
Brewer, a freshman from 
DeRidder. First year coach 
Charlotte Corley substituted 
freely during the whole game as 
the Demons following behind 
Nolen's 17 points built up a 48- 
33 halftime lead. 

In the first half the Lady 
Demons shot a sizzling 68 per 
cent from the field. 

In the second half the 
Demons continued to pace the 
game as they completely 
dominated both boards and 
shot at will against the hapless

Demons did not hit a field goal 
in the final three minutes as 
they coasted into their first 
win of the season. 

Also hitting in double 
figures for Northwestern were 
"Do" Bonin of New Iberia 
(14), Emma Ellerman of 
Winnsboro (14), freshman 
Lisa Brewer of Deridder (13), 
Diane Pittman of Hammond 
and freshman Tootie Carey 

Rounding out the rest of the 
scoring for the Demons were 
Becky Guidry (7), Ella Davis 
(4), Tammie Primeaux (2), 
and Hazel Hedricks (1). 

Carey was also the games 
top rebounder with 10 as the 
Lady Demons outrebounded 
the taller Tigerettes 56-42. 

Melinda Stanley was 
Ouachita's leading scorer with 
20 points. She received help 
from Virginia Cooper (16) and 
Marsha Lackey (14).

The Lady Demons march 
back into action Monday night 
as they travel to 
Nacagdoches, Tex. for a game 

with the Ladyjacks of Stephen F - Austin State University. 

Patty Nolen shows how she got her nickname the 

"Flash" as she drives in for these two points. The 
senior from Pitkin led the Lady Demons to a 93-68 
victory with her fast breaks and excellent 
ballhandling. Nolen led all Demon scorers with 17 
points and 6 rebounds. 

It didn't take Northwestern 
basketball fans long to find out 
how guard Dan "Ringer" Bell 
got his nickname. 

In last Monday night's 73-66 
pulsating victory over 
Louisiana College, Bell 
chimed in with eight field goal 
"ringers" from the 20-25 foot 
range to wipe out what had 
been a 12-point LC advantage 
in the first half. 

Bell, a 6-foot-3 junior who 
transferred to Northwestern 
after two years at Walker 
Junior College, scored 21 
points in the win. He had five 
clutch free throws during the 
waning minutes that iced the 

His long-range shooting had 
Demon fans thinking back to 
the mid-sixites when David 
Clark, now the coach at 
Campti High School, was 
filling up the basket from the 
25-foot mark. 

"We needed some points 
and I felt I could score so I put' 
em up," Bell said of his out- 
side shooting. "Coach (Tynes) 
Hildebrand showed con- 
fidence in me and that's all I 
needed because I've got 
confidence in myself." 

Hildebrand commented, 
"Dan has probably been our 
best outside shooter in 
practice and any time he's got 
a shot I want him to shoot. 
He's such a team man that 
sometimes he passes up his 
shot.. .that's why he didn't 
shoot much in our first game." 

After starring at Grissom 
High School in Huntsville, 

Ala., Bell went to Walkel 
College and averaged 
points and 8.4 assists 
game during his two yeaff 
the Jasper, Ala. school. 

Last season Bell was ail

Tradition involves more than winning 

The Couyon 8 victory over 
Kappa Sigma in last month's 
intramural flag football 
championship served to 
enhance the already rich 
winning tradition of the in- 
dependent team. The trophy, 
symbol of the elite in campus 
flag footballers, was taken 
home by Couyon 8 for the third 
time this decade. 

Just competing in this an- 
nual slugfest is old hat for 
Couyon. They have been one of 
the combatants on five oc- 
casions since 1970. Couyon, 
with an unparalleled record of 
5-1, has a stranglehold on the 
powerful independent league, 
which has produced six 

straight flag football cham- pionship occured in 1970 and 

The only blemish on their 
slate was in 1974 when Couyon 
forfeited a crucial game in 
order to meet a fraternity in 

Couyon 8 has always been 
involved in heated battles with 
participatnts in the fraternity 
league. Kappa Sigma holds 
the distinction of being the 
only member to defeat Couyon 
8 in six years. That victory 
came in 1970 as Couyon was 
the short end of the score, 13-7. 

Couyon 8's first cham-

the game set the precedent for 
the big play offense which was 
to characterize the team in 
years to come. With only one 
play left and trailing ROTC, 
quarterback Rickie Primm 
threw an 80 yard bomb to 
Glenn Barnhill from his own 
end zone to pull out the vic- 

1971 saw the advent of 
Couyon 8's traditional 
defensive style of play as well 
as a second consecutive 
championship. Stellar 
defensive back, Mike Wilburn, 
was the Innovator of a 
defensive system which is still 
in use today. Sigma Tau 
Gamma was the final victim 
that year. 

In 1972, Couyon failed to 
defend their title, losing in the 
playoffs to the Liberators, the 
eventual champions, but they 
defeated Kappa Alpha to 
capture third place. This team 
ran up the most prolific score 
in their history. 

On opening day they scored 
eleven touchdowns to defeat 
their opponent 75-0. Defense 

was in evidence this year as 
an underdog Couyon team 
shut out an offensive minded 
Ex-Jock team, 13-0. The Jocks 
managed to catch only one 
pass on that day among the 
smallish Couyon defenders. 

1973 saw Couyon 8 lose to the 
Wart Hogs on a controversial 
play. With Couyon leading 20- 
19 in the waning moments, a 
Couyon defender intercepted a 
pass in the end zone and was 
tackled trying to run it out. 
Arguments ensued as to the 
legality of the safety call, but 
Couyon lost the argument and 
the game.

The Couyon tradition ^Demoi

record. A particular incid

a football team. 

A Spirit of friendship 
pride has developed over 
years and Couyon "alu

In 1974 Couyon defeated 
Kappa Alpha and Sigma Tau 
Gamma in two breathtaking 
playoff contests. Both were 
won in last minutes scoring 
drives by Couyon 8. One drive

inside the one minute mark. 
However, the Wart Hogs d-

is the team's leading rebounder with 40. 
is averaging 13.3 rebounds per game,

The Demons have outrebounded their 
opponents this season 147 to 119. As a team 
they average 48.3 rebounds a game as op- 
posed to 39.7 for the opponents. 

Northwestern has been hurt at the charity 
line, having converted only 40 of 69 free 
throws. NSU opponents have pitched in 41 of 
53 free throws. 

By all indications Northwestern looks to be 
a second half team. The Demons have been 
outscored 122 to 96 in the first half. But the 
Demons have managed to outscore then- 
opponents in the second half 126 to 105. 

Northwestern will have a 10-day breaterh 
while finishing up with finals before swinging 
back into action on Dec. 18. Northwestern will 
be at home in a doubleheader. In the first 
game, NSU will host the University of Central 
Arkansas and in the second game of the 
doubleheader Louisiana College will take on 
Hendrix College. The following evening 
Northwestern will travel to Pineville, 
Louisiana for another doubleheader.

Intramurals break

As the semester comes to an 
end and winter sets in, NSU 
intramural activities go into 
hibernation until the spring 
term begins. 

In paddleball competition 
held Nov. 10, Larry Lambert 
of PEK captured first place in 
the men's division. "Ho" 
Hochstetler of Kappa Sig 
finished second while Danny 
Housely and Ken Wood, both 
representing PEK, tied for 
third. Finishing fourth was 
Jack Antilly of PEK. 

Nita Hughens captured top 

honors in women's paddleball 
while Liz Trudel won second 
place. Charlie Blume and 

Martha Allen rounded out the 
ranks finishing third and 
fourth, respectively. All are 
members of Sigma Sigma 

In team bowling, which was 
held Nov. 11 and 12 after being 
postponed because of work on 
the lanes, KA defeated Kappa 
Sig to win the men's i com- 
petition. Delta Sigma Theta 
toppled Phi Mu to capture the 
women's title. 

1965 to 1968. Guidry had 447 

Waters, a fleet-footed 6-foot- 
1, 175-pounder,set records for 
best average gain per catch in 
a game (50.5 versus Louisiana 
Tech) and best average gain 
per catch in a season (26.8). 

Waters' single game record 
broke the old mark of 42.3 set 
by Al Phillips against Stephen 
F. Austin in 1969. His new 
single season record, which 
was achieved on 18 receptions 
for 483 yards, scissored the old 
standard of 26.5 set by Billy 
Booth in 1957. Booth had 12 
catches for 318 yards. 

In kickoff returns, Waters 
chalked up two more records 
and tied another. He had 27 
returns for 527 yards (19.5 
average), breaking the old 
return mark of 21 set by Mario 
Cage in 1974 and the old 
yardage figure of 503 set by Al 
Phillips in 1970. 

Waters' six kickoff returns 
against Louisiana Tech this 
year tied Cage's record six 
record against Delta State in 

Thanks to the passing of 
Ballard, Stuart Wright, Mark 
Rhodes and fullback Sidney 
Thornton, Northwestern 
amassed 1,886 passing yards 
as a team during the season to 
break the old team of 1,751 set 
by the 1968 team of Guidry and 

Defensively, the Demons 
pounced on a record 20 
fumbles by the opposition. The 
old record for recovered 
fumbles was 19 set by the 1973 

Although he didn't set any 
records, Thornton moved 
close to the top in several all- 
time rushing categories. The 
5-foot-10, 223-pound Thornton, 
who has one year of eligibility 
remaining, has 382 rushing 
attempts (No. 3) for 1,761 net 
yards (No. 4) to rank among 
the Demons' top five rushers 
of all-time. 

Ahead of Thornton in the 
yardage category are Donald 

Johnson (1969-72) 2,253, 
Charlie Tolar (1956-58) 2,194 
and Mario Cage (1971-74) 
2,121. Only Cage (505) and 
Richard Ware (401 from 1967- 
70) have more rushing at- 
tempts than Thornton. 

Ballard needs only eight 
attempts to break Guidry 's 
pass attempts in a career 
(447) and 1,024 passing yards 
to crack Guidry's, 3,903 
passing yardage record in a 

Ballard's 59.3 completion 
figure this year was the 
second best ever. The record 
is 61.0 percent set by Dale 
Hoffpauir in 1958 and tied by 
Guidry in 1966. Both hit 61 of 
100 passes during those record 
years respectively. 

Actually, Waters set a 
school record for most pass 
receiving yardage in a single 
season by a freshman. 
Waters' 483 yards on 18 cat- 
ches snapped the old mark of 
477 set by Steve Gaspard in his 
rookie year of 1966. 

Waters' 483 yards was the 
third best single season figure 
in the school's history. It 
ranks behind Al Phillips, who 
had 642 yards on 35 catches in 
1968, and Dick Reding, who 
shared 32 passes for 595 yards 
during the 1966 campaign. 

Mike Almond, another 
freshman who is a product of 
Bossier High School, had 25 
receptions for 399 yards. 
Almond's 25 catches is the 
sixth best single season figure 
and his 399 yards ranks No. 8 
on the all-time single season 

Comerback Jarvis Blinks 
completed his career with 10 
pass interceptions for 63 yards 
in returns to tie for seventh 
place on the all-time list with 
James McNew, who had 10 
thefts from 1953 to 1956.

Colwell steals Panel title 

Well, the end of the CS 
Prediction Panel finally came 
and not a moment too soon in 
the opinion of Sports Editor 
Philip Timothy. 

"All season long, the sure 
winners have either tied or 
screwed around and lost to a 
lesser opponent," said 
Timothy, "I can't understand 
how they could do this to me." 

However, the big news in the 
Panel was not the teams that 
lost. No, rather, it was the fact 
that for most of the season, 
Steve Colwell, the managing 
editor of the Current Sauce, 
has been using . outside aid. 

Cowell, who has the Panel's 
only perfect record of 15-0, 
finally broke down and told 
Timothy that he had been 
using outside aid right before 
the last week of the season. 
Timothy finally pried out the 
name of this outside aid. 
Colwell has been using Joani 
Rosenthal, the news editor of 
the Current Sauce. 

When Timothy found out 
that a girl had been picking 
against him, he could only 
shake his head. 

"In all my time running the 
Panel I have very seldom been 
able to beat the female 
pickers," said Timothy, 
"Colwell found this out and 
used it against me. It was sly 
and dirty, but I guess you 
could say that all is fair in love 
and picking ." 

The Panel was also thrown 
into a sort of controversy 
when the president of the band 
decided that he should be 
allowed to pick on the panel. 
However, I decided after 
studying all the facts that I 
didn't need him. But he 
wouldn't let up and after a few 
words, I finally convinced him 
that he didn't need to be on the 

However, several records 
were broken in only the third 
year of the CS Prediction 

One such record has Deen 
broken only once in the entire 
history of the Panel, that 
record was for predicting all 
15 games correctly. Doug 
Norris had previously held the 
record when he posted a 13-2 
mark last season. 

Another record or string 
that was broken this season 
was for the best percentage 
for a total of games. Colwell 
claimed that title as he posted 
a winning percentage of .700. 

One record that didn't fall 
was for the most number of 
incorrect picks. Timothy has 
that honor along with former 
sports editor Dan McDonald. 
Both Timothy and McDonald 
had identical 6-9 marks. Only 
one other time in the history of 
the Panel has there ever been 
another member to come 
close to that. Tommy 
Whitehead, a faculty picker, 
had a 7-8 mark. 

But Colwell did manage to 
clinch the title as he, or 
Rosenthal, picked 14 games 
correct in the closing week to 
end the season. 

Colwell ended the season 
with a 105-45 mark. The 
student pickers just squeezed 
by Timothy as they claimed 
the second place with a 98-52 
mark. Timothy came in third 
with a 97-53 mark. Timothy 
did make one miscount during 
the regular season, which was 
quickly brought to his at- 
tention. However the mistake 
was quickly taken care of. The 
poor faculty pickers were the

real losers as for a second 
season in a row they ended up 
in last place. They came in 
last with a 96-54 mark. 

So with another season 
coming to a colse and the 
playoffs and the super bowl 
looming into sight, many 
would expect for Timothy to 
try his hand one more time. 
However, Timothy has 
learned his lesson and said 
that he had better let these 
games slide by. 

However, there might just 
be a possibility that the 
combination of Colwell and 
Rosenthal might try their 
hand at some of these games.

NSU Library works new system 

NSU's Watson Library has 
now completed the switch 
from the Dewey Decimal 
Classification System to the 
Library of Congress 
Classification system. 

This facet of a plan to 
achieve an automated cir- 
culation system which began 
in Russell Library a little over 
eight years ago has been 
completed at least in terms of 
the original goal. 

This change is desirable for 
several reasons, chief of 
which was the desirability of 
using a standardized 
cataloging product which 
promised savings in time and 
money. Most of the larger 

universities in the country 
were then or have since 
converted to this system. NSU 
is one of the first in Louisiana 
to complete the task. 

At the time it was estimated 
that the project would take at 
least seven years. Dining the 
reclassification, ap- 
proximately 133,000 books 
have been reclassified, not 
including new books. This 
project will now continue into 
the Special Collections 
Division which was not 
originally included in the long- 
term proposal. 

The library personnel would 
like to thank all who had to 
bear with them through the 

confusion on many occasions 
over the years while the 
project was underway. 

A new binding service is 
now available in the Media 
Center for reports and term 
papers. This service is 
basically for the binding of 
unbound 8V'xll" sheets such 
as those used for term papers. 
Another application would be 
for office work routine 
manuals. A choice of either 
paper, plastic, or hard cover is 
offered as the binder. 

Cost is determined by the 
type of binders selected and 
the thickness of the paper. 
Order forms can be obtained 
in the Media Center. A period 
of 48 hours is necessary for the 
order to be completed.

You Can't Taste While Talking 

Benjamin Franklin said, "Wine 
is constant proof that God loves 
us and loves to see us happy." 

Unfortunately, some people 
aren't happy with wine unless 
they can reduce its appreciation 
to arguments akin to the number 
of angels that can be accommo- 
dated on the head of a pin. 

To be sure, the glories of the 
grape are many and various. The 
last thing we need, however, is 
another self - proclaimed pundit 
swirling a glass and talking about 
the Gay-Lussac equation while 
claiming to perceive Gregorian 
chants and the Rites of Dionysius 
in the wine. 

Just as one need not be a bota- 
nist to appreciate a rose or a 
meteorologist to delight in a sun- 
set, you need not be an enologist 
to enjoy a glass of wine. 

It may be that wine snobs exist 
because table wine, the kind of 
wine that increases the pleasure 
of food (and hence the most 
important category from an aes- 
thetic standpoint), is relatively 
new to America. For a long time, 
the pleasures of table wine have 
been taken for granted by Ameri- 
can families with strong European 
heritages and by the upper class. 
But until relatively recently, 
only a minority of wines shipped 
in America were table wines. 
Only in 1969 did table wines 
make up the majority of ship- 
ments. Since then, the category 
has grown steadily both absolute- 
ly and relative to other types. 

One of the by-products of the 
new popularity of fine wine was 
the wine snob, ready to dictate, 
pontificate, and obfuscate. There 
were special glasses to consider, 
the appropriate wine with each 
dish, not to mention correct 
temperatures and serving proced- 
ures. And the wines themselves 

had to be from places with 
strange and confusing names. 

Fortunately, the consumer has 
discovered that enjoyment of 
table wine is not complicated. In 
the marketplace, if a wine is pric- 
ed right, looks good, smells good, 
and tastes good, that is sufficient 
cause to buy it. 

What some wine drinkers 
haven't realized is that straight- 
forward standards of what looks, 
smells, and tastes good are appli- 
cable to all wines. There is no 
compendium of tasting secrets 
known only to people who can 
say Grand Eche'zeaux five times 
fast. When the fundamentals are 
known, with a little practice you 
will discover that wines disdained 
by the snobs may stand very 
comfortably beside those famous 
European names. More import- 
antly, you will find you are com- 
fortable enough with good wines 
to share Ben Franklin's relaxed 
attitude — and that is the most 
important step toward real ap- 

In my next three columns, we'll 
take a close look at tasting

Members of Beta Bete Beta 
Biological Society traveled to 
the Atchafalya River Basin 
for a weekend of canoeing 
expedition during November. 
The purpose of the trip was to 
study the flora and fauna of 
one of the last wilderness 
areas of this type in the United 
States and the only one in the 
state of Louisiana. 

The Atchafalaya River 
Basin has been in a constant 
state of change due to silting 
in the waterways and man's 
influence. This constant 
changing makes the basin a 
unique and intriguing area. 

The guide for the trip was

R. T.R ector 

Robert T. Rector, assistant 
professor of art at Nor- 
thwestern State University, 
has had three large abstract 
explorations in color accepted 
for showing at the American 
Painters in Paris Exhibition 
which begins Dec. 15 in the 
Paris Convention Center, one 
of the most prestigious 
exhibition halls in Europe. 

The formal Paris show of 
American art, which will 
continue through Jan. 15, 1976 
is sponsored by ARGRAF, a 
non-profit cultural association 
which seeks to promote 
American art in Europe and 
especially in France. 

Selected American artists 
were invited to submit slides 
of one to three of their works 
of art. A special selection 
committee screened the en- 
tries and selected the works 
which qualified for inclusion 
in the month-long show. After 
leaving Paris, the show will 
tour Europe. 

"I am very excited that all 
three of my entries were 

l »H ■ » 

accepted," said Rector. 
"They were looking for works 
which represented American 
art at the present time, and I 
am honored that mine were 

The titles of Rectors' three 
abstracts are "Lost High- 
way," "Honky Tonk Blues" 
and "Cheating Heart," All 
three were named after Hank 
Williams' songs that are 
among the NSU artist's 

Rector, whose specialty at 
Northwestern is advertising 
design and drawing, received 
a master's of fine arts degree 
from Louisiana State 
University in Baton Rouge. In 
1973, he exhibited at the New 
Talent Competition Show in 
the Baton Rouge Gallery. 

While at LSU, he studied 
with two nationally- 
recognized painters from New 
York City — Robert 
Beauchamp and Marcia 

Rector, who is in his second 
year on the faculty of NSU's 
Department of Art, has shown 
his art work in galleries 
throughout the state.

Computer center updates admission

By Olu Akinrinade 

The processing of ap- 
plications for admission into 
Northwestern State 
University has become swifter 
with the introduction of a new 
application system, this past 
summer, according to Larry 
Morrison, director of the 
Computer Center. 

Morrison, said the Com- 
puter Center in conjunction 
with various other depart- 
ments, including the 
Registrar's office and the 
Testing department, 
evaluated the problems with 
the old system and came up 
with a better system of 
processing applications of 
prospective students. 

Explaining how the system 
works, Morrison said the ACT 
headquarters in Iowa sends 
information about high school 
seniors who make this 
university their first through 
fifth choice the computer 

center. From this information 
the center prints application 
forms for the specified 
prospective students. The 
forms are then automatically 
mailed to them for signing and 
filling of a few blank paces 
with information not available 
to the center. 

The prospective student 
sends the form to the registrar 
who in turn uses the realtime 
capability-television terminal, 
to call up the data on in- 
dividual application for up- 

The process then shifts to 
the center where a 
registration packet is made 
out for the admitted student 
based on the data received 
from the registrar. 

This new system has helped 
to recruit students and to 
speedily process their forms. 
It has helped avoid the time 
consuming method whereby 
high school seniors had to 

apply formally for application 
forms, said Morrison. 
However, the system is best 
suited for high school seniors 
who take the ACT. Transfer 
students still have to apply to 
the registrar office for forms. 

A by-product of this new 
system is the evaluation being 
made on the enrollment cards. 

Presently, the course 
preference and the news 
bureau cards have been 
eliminated from the 
enrollment packet and it is 
presumed that within the next 
year the packet would be 
reduced to a single document. 

The center is also handling a

The Baha'i International 
Community has consistently 
supported United Nations 
efforts to expand and protect 
the human rights of all races, 
peoples, and nations since its 
creation in 1945. Equal rights 
and opportunities for women 
and men is now, and since the 
founding of the Faith in 1863, 
has been one of the fun- 
damental social laws upon 
which Baha'i Writings are 
based. "So long as these two 
wings are not equivalent in 
strength the bird will not fly. 
Until womankind... en joys the 
same arena of activity, ex- 
traordinary attainment for 
humanity will not be 

The right of women to 
participate fully and equally 
in the development of nations 
has been a consistent theme of 
International Women's Year 
1975, designated by the United 
Nationa.s and supported by 

organizations around the 
world, including the Baha'i 
International Community, a 
organization at the U.N. 

Human Rights Day was 
established by the United 
Nations to commemorate the 
1948 signing of the Universial 
Declaration of Human Rights 
by the member states of the 
world assembly. The United 
States was one of the 
signatories. The Declaration 
of Human Rights, recognizing 
the interdependence of 
nations, was an attempt to 
define a code of essential 
human rights which could be 
adopted by all governments.

Elimination of Discrimination 
Against Women, ratified in 
1967 by the U.N. membership,

The Baha'i Faith seeks the 
unification of mankind. It was 
founded in the latter half of the 
19th century by Mirza Husayn-

Who was known as 
Baha'u'llah, which means the 
"Glory of God." £rha'i

Auditions set for 'Oliver' 

by Johnny Gahagan 

Auditions for "Oliver" will be held by 
University Theatre Feb. 4 and 5 at 3 and 
7 p. m. in the Fine Arts Building. 
Anyone may try out for a part. 

Singers who try out should have a 
prepared number, preferably from 
"Oliver." The music should be sheet 
music. Dancers are also needed; many 
parts require male dancers. 

The musical will open April 1 and 
continue until the fourth. 

The theater has two main purposes. 
First and most important is to provide 
service to NSU students, and second to 
serve as a laboratory for students. 

Usually the theater group tries to 
schedule four plays a semester, and two 
in the summer. Anyone can try out for a 
part, even if he isn't a speech major.

The Student Body Association (SBA) 
has voted to sustain the protest filed by 
Miss NSU runner-up, Vikki Young, 
contesting that election. 

The results of the election were an- 
nounced Saturday, Dec. 6, during the 
Christmas entertainment program at 
Prather Coliseum. Shortly after it had 
been announced that Miss Young had 
been defeated by Paula Jones, Miss 
Young filed her protest. 

The protest was based on two major 
points : one - No ballot boxes were used 
in the cafeteria. Students who voted in 
the cafeteria simply voted and then 
handed someone the ballots which were 
then stacked in piles on a table. Miss 
Young stated "the Government grants 
us a secret ballot, why can't the school. 
There was simply no secrecy in the 
ballots cast in the cafeteria." 

Two — Miss Young also claimed that 
items had been omitted from her 
resume that she felt should have been 

As an example, Miss Young had 
indicated that she was president of the 
dorm council, but when the resume was 
posted this item had been omitted. 

"Now I understand that the elections 
board has the right to edit resumes, but 
I don't see having an office such as 
president of an organization omitted," 
she stated. 

Miss Young also complained that 
Joani Rosenthal, co-chairman of the 
elections board omitted her grade point 
average (3.35) from the resume. "I 
can't see why mine was omitted when 
all the other contestants' were used," 
Miss Young added. 

When contacted about this complaint 
as well as the others, Miss Rosenthal 
stated that the grade point average had 
been left off by mistake. "The omission 
was through no fault except Vikki's as it 
was not furnished in the beginning and I 
was unable to contact her. When she did 
tell me her GPA, it was written in. Also 

Young was not the only candidate with 
her GPA omitted, as Debra Kilman did 
not furnish her either." 

"Concerning the omission of 
president of dorm council, if Miss 
Young would have glanced at the other 
resumes, she would have noticed that 
two candidates for Mr. NSU had items 
also omitted. Doug Norris and Dock 
Voorhies had Demon Cheerleader and 
SBA committees omitted respectively. 
These omissions were not aimed at 
anyone personally, as some think. I was 
up until 3 a. m. typing the resumes and 
due to the time and no help, some things 
were just overlooked. I can only offer 
my apologies to those concerned, "Miss 
Rosenthal stated. 

SBA owns one ballot box and there 
were two polling places. Workers either 
took the ballots face down or just told 

Jackson enters 
not guilty plea 

by Belitha Foitek 

Still being held on criminal charges in 
Natchitoches Parish Jail is Roy 
Jackson of 831 Saline St., booked on 
November 3, 1975, in connection with 
Caddo Dorm break-in. 

His trial date is set for April 6 or 8 
with Judge Richard B. Williams 

Jackson will plead not guilty to six 
different charges held against him. 
Those charges are: aggravated bat- 
tery, attempted rape, simple burglary, 
resisting police officers, and attempted 
aggravated rape. 

Caddo House Director Linda Voss 
Smith stated that the doors through 
which Jackson entered have been 

the students to put them down them- 
selves. Workers did not sit there and 
watch everyone vote. Students had the 
whole cafeteria to walk around and vote 
in. Most did their voting at the ballot 
table," according to Rosenthal. 

Miss Rosenthal also stated, "Jay 
Garcia and I did the best we could 
under the circumstances. People are 
always ready with criticisms but they 
are usually the first to say they are too 
busy when asked to help." Garcia is co- 
chairman of the elections board along 
with Miss Rosenthal. 

Rosenthal admitted that there was a 
personality clash between Young and 
herself adding "I doubt if she would 
have contested the election if she had 
won. The day Jay and I announced the 
results, I had two different people tell 
me that Vikki said 'I'm contesting the 
election if I don't win' ". 

The SBA, after hearing Young's 
arguments, voted to disapprove the 
results of the election. Quorum was 
barely reached at the meeting. 

It appears that the Student Supreme 
Court will have the final say in the 
matter, and if it does not overturn the 
SBA decision, a new election will have 
to be held. The court is scheduled to 
meet on this issue Thursday. 

All education majors 
planning to schedule 
methods courses in 
education for the Fall 1976 
semester must be admitted 
to candidacy in the College of 
Education. If you have not 
been admitted officially, 
check with the Dean . 


Emery kicks off lecture series 


Dr. Jolly Harper and Mr. Orville 
Hanchey, of the NSU Art Department,

George Emery will speak on 
"Everything you always wanted to 
know about yourself, but were afraid to 
ask" at 7:30 p. m. tonight and Wed- 
nesday night in the Arts and Sciences 

Emery, who is sponsored by the 
Distinguished Lecturer Series and the 
Integrity Club, will also be speaking to 
Dr. Millard Bienvenu's sociology 
.classes, Charles Coke's art classes, and 
Dr. John Waskom's geology classes 
tomorrow on topics relating to these 

Before arriving in Natchitoches, 
Emery will appear at 11:30 a. m. today 
on the Ethma Odum Show on KALB, 
Channel 5, in Alexandria. 

In the past, Emery has counseled 
people with drug-oriented problems, 
focusing his interest on LSD addicts. 

Emery, a graduate of the University 
of Maine at Farmington and the Boston 
University School of Theology, now 
serves as the International Field 
Representative of the Universal In- 
stitute of Applied Ontology. Their 
headquarters are located near 
Loveland, Colorado. 

George Emery 

Ontology is t science and art of being 
what you really are. Emery feels that 
Ontology offers a practical way of 
letting man's true self extend control to 
all activities, that all problems, per- 
sonal and general, may be solved, and 
that peace may be established with and 
between all men. 

Emery, usually accompanied by his 

wife, Joelle, travels to high school and 
college campuses, churches, military 
bases, service clubs, and many other 
groups to speak on a variety of topics. 

Although he enjoys speaking spon- 
taneously according to the need of the 
particular situation, some previous 
topics include: "The Drug Crisis — 
Let's Talk Solution," "The Artistry of 
Living," and "How to be One's True 

David Waskom, president of the 
Integrity Club, who has heard Emery 
speak several times said "Everytime 
(Emery speaks) he'll keep you on the 
edge of your seat." 

Dr. W. Lee Martin, chairman of the 
Department of Communication at 
Indiana University, said, "I have heard 
college lecturers from all over the 
country, and George Emery ranks 
among the top five per cent of them ... 
We had him speak at six universities in 
Indiana. We had him back within six 
months for a return engagement and 
the students are after us again for

night are free to students and the 

Play cast competes in regional festival 

Sticks and Bones, NSU's entry in this 
year's American College Theatre 
Festival, took to the road early last 
Tuesday to participate in the Southwest 
Regional Fort Worth Festival held in 
Scott Theatre Jan. 21-24. 

Screening committees in the South- 
west Region (Louisiana, Texas, 
Oklahoma, Arkansas, and New 
Mexico) selected NSU's entry as one of 
eight out of 57 to participate in the 

The production selected at Fort 
Worth will go to Washington, D.C. to 
perform at the John F. Kennedy Center 
for the Performing Arts. 

Rick Barnickel, who portrayed Ozzie 
in the play, was selected by the com- 
mittees as one of 10 students to audition 
for the $2000 Irene Ryan Scholarship. 

Sticks and Bones had a cast of seven: 
Rick Barnickel, as Ozzie; Ginni 
LeLong, as Harriet; Kevin Koval, as 
Rick; Allen Koob, as David; Thomas 
Little, as Father Donald; Jamie San- 
ders, as Sgt. Major, and Hollie Har- 
deman as Zung. 

According to R ay Schexnider, 
associate professor of speech and 
director of Sticks and Bones, the 
University Players rehearsed a total of 

323 hours in preparation for the Fort 
Worth Festival. 

Schexnider stated that he had been 
pleased with rehearsals and per- 

formances, but felt the play was too

hours of rehearsal time preparing to compete in the American 
College Theatre Festival Regional Competition in Fort Worth, 
Texas last week. The cast includes (front row) Kevin Koval, Ginni 
Lelong, Allen Koob, and Rick Barnicle, (second row) Thomas 
Little and Jamie Sanders; (back row) Hollie Hardeman. 

statewide competition held at Baton 
Rouge. The editing cut 25 minutes from g 
the play. 

Schexnider provided the following 
explanation of Stickes and Bones in the 
play's program: "David Rabe does not 
intend that Sticks and Bones should be 
perceived as a self-righteous audience 
baiting protest play, devoted to 
habitual or anti-war propaganda. He 
does, however, lift the playwright's 
intuitive mirror to face of reality and 
ask that we gaze into our images." 

Members of the production staff 
included Dr. E. Robert Black, depart- 
ment head; Ray Schexnider, director of 
the NSU Theatre; Michael S. Corriston, 
technical director; Bob Cox, asst. 
technical director; Michael Thomas, 
stage manager ; Alecia Alexander, 
public relations director; Marc 
Longlois, program design, and Susan 
Clary, Poster design. 

The American College Theatre 
Festival is an annual event held in 
cooperation with the John F. Kennedy 
Center for the Performing Arts, the 
Alliance for Arts Education, Amoco Oil 
Co., and the American Theatre Assn. 

"Sticks and Bones" was presented 
Oct. 8-11 at NSU as part of the Bicen- 
tennial Theatre Season.

The Way I See It 

avoiding the noise 




As it has been said, "Now is 
the time to turn over a new 
leaf." It's the beginning of a 
new year, and the Bicen- 
tennial Commission would 
remind us that it's the 
beginning of the two hun- 
dredth, to boot. It's the time 
for comments on the old and 
the new. 

The world and the country 
are not on the most settled of 
grounds, but here in Louisiana 
and Natchitoches and at 
Northwestern, things that 
receive national news 
coverage are a bit removed. 

Aside from all our own 
problems (which seem very 
petty when compared to those 

There are no prophets in this 
newspaper office, but all in 
all, the predicted outlook for 
1976 is favorable. A lot of 
campus organizations have 
been suffering from one type 
of problem or another, but 
from talking to some student 
leaders, it would seem that 
things are on the upward

having the largest headaches 
of any, but hopefully members 
of the Senate and the SBA 
officers are going to be able to 

Some strange things are 
always happening around the 
Current Sauce office. But 
then, there are certainly 
enough "unusual" people in 
and out of the office, so 
strange occurrences are be- 
coming commonplace. 

Along with the things that 
happen in the office, the phone 

The Senatorial elections 
over, we now are getting 
ready to face, in a few months, 
the city race for a new mayor 
for Natchitoches. Of what 
importance is that? Maybe not 
much to those who think of 
Northwestern and Nat- 
chitoches as completely 
separate entities. To those of 
us who see things as they are, 
that the University is 
dependant on the city and the 
city is dependent on the 
University, what is good for 
the city should be good for the 


of the world outside our small, 
sheltered domain), school and 
life seem to be just rolling 

Though some may say that 
they are forced by necessity to 
lead very active and busy 
lives, still the atmosphere 
here seems sometimes to 
claim the opposite. 

For all the hustle and bustle 
seen on campus at 8 or 9 a. m, 
there is a strange quietness 
and peacefulness seen at 4 p. 
m. or so that is quiet a com- 
parison. And the presence of 
this quiet time is probably one 
of the reasons the spring 
semester here always seems a 
little more relaxed and slower 
and why pressures, which 

'76 favorable 

straighten out the problems 
this semester. 

Right now there are cer- 
tainly some sparks flying 
concerning election 
procedures, but after all, the 
elections aren't going to 
destroy anyone's life, being 
merely for student offices and 
honors. No one condones poor 
election practices or any kind 
of mishandling, but the 
seriousness of the whole 
process needs to be kept in the 
proper perspective and not 

Gary Easton 

is also a constant source of 
interesting information. 

Gary Easton ... whoever you 
are, we received a call for you 
last week. It seems that your 
transformer is wound in 
aluminum, instead of copper 
as had been thought, and 
that's why it has taken so long

university and vice versa. 

A new senator, Don Kelly, 
was elected over the in- 
cumbent, Paul Foshee. In a 
short time there will also be a 
new mayor. Both will be in- 
fluenced and will in turn in- 
fluence the people of this area 
— and that will include 
students at Northwestern if 
the students put themselves in 
the frame of mind that they 
are members of this com- 
munity, like anyone else, and 
that these men and women 
(there is a woman on the 


never really leave us, can be 
buried for a few minutes, say, 
on a walk across campus. 

It's remarkable to see the 
distinct difference between 
the new parts of campus and 
the older one. Don't com- 
pletely neglect the quadrangle 
with its trees and strange 
markers left by classes of 
years past or Chaplin's Lake. 
It would be terrible to dwell 
constantly in the concrete and 
staircases of just the newer 

It's surprising that studying 
seems less like work when 
there isn't anyone around but 
the trees and the lake, but 
many students claim this to be 

allowed to interfere with the 
real purpose of this school — 
education and learning. 

Afterall, with or without the 
SBA, the various courts, etc., 
the university COULD go on 
functioning. Other univer- 
sities have started cutting out 
everything but academics, 
and if settlements can't be 
reached with student 
organizations, it may 
someday come to that, 
perhaps simplifying a lot of 

to repair. At least that's what 
the caller told us ... even when 
we answered the phone,

copper. We know he's been 
worried about his tran- 

ballot for mayor) have a 
direct effect on the lives of 
everyone here. 

Depending on exactly where 
you feel you stand in the 
scheme of local politics, your 
vote is always needed, 
whether it is cast here or 
wherever you call your home. 
For any who didn't know, and 
for those who have forgotten, 
Northwestern students can re- 
gister to vote here in Nat- 
chitoches. It will mean giving 
up your voter registration 
elsewhere but after all, you do 
live here.

I contested the Mr. and Miss 
NSU elections of December 3, 
1975 based upon irregularities 
committed by the co- 
chairmen of the SBA Elections 
Board and condoned by other 
student leaders as well as 
administrators. I believe that 
if NSU is to hold future 
elections, these elections 
should be conducted as fairly 
as possible to give ALL 
candidates equal op- 
portunities. Faculty or ad- 
ministrative supervision 
needs to be employed since 
evidence has shown that the 
elected student leaders, in 
whom we have placed our 
trust and confidence, cannot 
be depended upon to carry out 
the responsibilities inherent in 
their respective offices. 

By contesting the elections 
of December 3, 1975 1 was able 
to "get a foot in the door" and 
show that the Mr. and Miss 
NSU elections were not the 
only elections from which 
irregularities occurred. The 
SBA Constitution (Article IV, 
Section IX) states in effect 
that elections board co- 
chairmen are responsible for 
seeing that proper facilities 
are used and that impartial 
elections commissioners are 
to be used to man the polls on 
election day. The co-chairmen 

of the elections board violated 
their own constitution during 
the fall of 1975 by: 

1. allowing the co- 
chairwoman of the elections 
board to serve as an elections 
commissioner during the 
State Fair Court elections and 
man the polls throughout 
election day while she, herself 
was a candidate for the State 
Fair COurt. Impartial elec- 
tions commissioner? I say not. 

2. allowing the co- 
chairwoman of the elections 
board to begin counting the 
votes at 2:00 p. m. that day 
(remember, she was also a 
candidate who subsequently 
was "elected" to the State 
Fair Court). By 3:30 p. m. of 
that same day, and after 200 
votes had been counted, the 
co-chairwoman reported to 
other student leaders which 
women had the most number 
of votes, who had none, etc. 

During the Mr. and Miss 
NSU elections, items were 
deleted from candidate's 
resumes. The importance as 
to the content of the resume is 
great — many students, un- 
familiar with the candidates, 
rely heavily upon the can- 
didate's qualifications to help 
them determine for whom 
they shall cast their vote. The 
co-chairwoman admitted she 
left out certain ac- 

complishments from resumes 
due to the fact that she typed 
them one morning at 2:00 a. 
m. and randomly selected 
what SHE thought to be most 
important. Furthermore, she 
stated she really did not know 
what she was doing due to the 
lateness of the hour. It's nice 
to know such "competent" 
people are supposedly 
representing you and your 
interests to the SBA to the best 
of their abilities.... 

The Mr. and Miss NSU run- 
offs will be held again this 
semester and I predict I shall 
lose by an even greater 
margin than before. 
Something must be done to 
insure honesty with every 
election — I have nothing 
more to lose by bringing to 
light the irregularities of the 
past, hopefully this will affect 
the future elections. Judge for

Dear Editor: 

In reference to a outline

I am writing to disavow the

The pledge education 
program of KA is designed to 
foster in young men leader- 
ship, a sense of togetherness, 
and the ability to effectively 
succeed in college. Such 
practices as pledge lines are 
contrary to what we believe 
the young men of KA would or 
should have any relationship. 

The National Office as well 
as this chapter does not 
tolerate hazing pledges in any 
manner whatsoever. Of this 
policy we are proud since we 
believe that the individual's

we are seeking to develop 
each person's own unique

(Editor's Note: This 
evaluation was done by 
members of the Current Sauce 
staff and other interested 
persons who just happene to 
be in the Current Sauce office 
when our conversation turned 
to where to go to eat lunch. All 
of us being "connoisseurs" 
and most of us upperclassmen 
and having eaten at all these 
places, we thought ourselves 
properly informed on the 
subject. Of course the best 
way to pick your favorite 
places is to actually try them 

There comes a time in every 
student's life (usually about 
three or four times a day) 
when he simply must have 
something to eat, some 
nuriousment for his (or her) 

Time and time again he 
turns to the old standbys— the 
cafeteria and the S.U. 
cafeteria— but sooner or later, 
he is bound to leave the 
campus food behind in search 
of finer delicacies. 

He goes off -campus to one of 
the three major feeding spots 
(either Hwy. 1 South, the 
general downtown area, or the 
"within walking distance of 
campus" section). 

To save you time the next 
allowance you get, here is a 
brief run-down on the finer 
eateries in Natchitoches. 

"Within walking distance" 

El Camino Restaurant— 

Newly reopened, this is one of 

two places in town that stays 
open 24-hours. Prices are 
questionable and the help isn't 
too friendly. Food is O.K. 

Burger Chef— One of the 
many hamburger places in 
town, this place just added a 
new "fix it yourself" type 
table of relishes to put on your 
hamburger. It used to be 
known for its poor food, but it 
has gotten better recently. 

Taco Place— Only place in 
town for Mexican food. Ser- 
vice and food is good and place 
is nice. Recommended. 

Silver Eagle Mining 
Company— The place is so 
dark that it's hard to say 
whether the pizza looks good 
or not. Most people drink 
enough beer while there that 
the food tastes great (whether 
it really does or whether that 
effect is created by the beer is 
a puzzle). 

Pickle Barrel— Best 

hamburgers in town. Nice 
atmosphere. It is a small 
place where groups of 
students, like to arrange to 
meet each other. Also has a 
pool table for while you're 
waiting. Also serves steak. 
Downtown area 

P and C. Drugstore Foun- 
tain—A very strange 
character runs the fountain. 
Very unusual combinations on 
the sandwiches, and prices to 
correspond with large 
amounts of meats and 

Lasyone's —Recommended. 
They are know for the famous 
Natchitoches meat pies. The 
restaurant is one of those 
home owned places and is 
frequented by local 
businessmen. Best pecan pie 
in town. 

Uncle Albert's— Conflicting 
opinion on this fried chicken 
place. If you like crusty fried 

chicken, you'll like this place. 
Some, however, say it's too 

Foremost Dairy— Less 
expensive than most places in 
town. Very few people have 
ever eaten there, but it's 
someplace different to go. 

Zesto's— This place has 
cherry flavored milkshakes. 
Good ice cream. High prices 
on softdrinks. 

Highway 1, South 

Burger King— Fish sand- 
wiches are a favorite. Com- 
mercialism in it's finest hour, 
but you can "have it your 
way" with little waiting. 

Waddle-N Grill— Open 24 
hours, great for late-nighters. 
They won't take checks but his 
place has been a favorite of 
students for a long time. They 
are also known for their 
homemade biscuits (when you 
can catch them just out of the 
oven) and their chili.
